      Yo Faithe,
      "Perhaps" you are 100% right on target. But what
      I see is that "Those who are in denial
      and living fear are actually those who are seeking
      alternate paths...". I see them as being stuck on the only
      path they have blindly been going down, good, bad,
      or whatever, but certainly one of unneeded suffering.
      Peace and blessings,
