In the context of preparing for the Great Waves of change, the benefits that you will hold onto are so insignificant compared to the requirements placed upon you that to cling to these benefits represents a kind of self-betrayal.
It is as if you have given over your life to some kind of dark force for some small pleasure or advantage.
Here there is no escape from self-conflict. Here you cannot really relieve yourself of the problem, for once you have seen and known the truth, you cannot shake this off with all kinds of excuses and justifications.
To move, you govern the mind instead of being governed by it. You direct your emotions instead of being directed by them. You overcome your inertia, overcome your resistance, while you gain self-determination.
Here you see, you know and you take action.
