Consideration: Potentials turn into actuals. As long as you are developing, you are becoming your ideals. It may not seem fast enough but steady progress is satisfactory. As your view of the grand reality becomes fuller and clearer you may feel you are shrinking, but only because your view of reality is getting bigger. When looking at the night sky you may feel like an insignificant speck in a vast universe of stars and galaxies; on the other hand, you are a significant spark that can take part in the grand adventure.
