See below a U-curve with feelings. It is obvious that the U-journeys people experience are different and evoke a multitude of feelings. These are my personal experiences.
The most relevant opportunity is on the left-hand side – the STOP-sign. You can push the accelerator and keep driving. I call this option Highway to Hell, or the autopilot of unconsciousness.

The other option is to slow down and choose the path of awareness. You will head downwards, and finally reach the Eye of the Needle. Here you will wake up to the questons “Who is my Self?” and “What is my Work?”
