We scrabble about in the quicksand trying to find 'our' solid ground, but every way we turn the solid inevitably turns to mush. The secret is to solidify our little bit of quicksand, and always have faith in yourself.

And be willing for that little bit of solidity to turn to mush at any time, I guess, and then find another point to stand on. Well, as you indicated, the true point of solidity is within us, not someplace outside in the world.

From what I've heard, scrabbling in the quicksand has the effect of increasing the speed at which you go under. The way to slow the process of being pulled down is to lean back into it ... and relax? :) Easier said than done ...
