When the air is thin you have to keep reaching for the higher ground. When you realise that you are now on a higher plane you have to cling to it with your fingers and summon all your strength for support. When you know where you want to go but you don't know how to get there you need to first look deep inside of yourself and then consult a map for direction and a guru for guidance. When you can't quite break the door down you need to keep on trying.
