yeah that is a very good question. (i didnt like my answer lol)
lol...i discovered that it's not so impressive to be hardy outside the vortex at the hand of abraham too..it's much more impressive to have inside the vortex stamina...and way more fun when life demonstrates that. but really....i had the answer way wrong too till i came to abraham. i think that was the main thing i came to learn..that ease and joy are honorable and profitable and benevolent...that toil and struggle is not.
