The world we live in is a slippery place. And it's a downward slope dropping from right to left. The light is present on your right. The darkness is present on your left. Both exist in a mutual understanding. Both must exist for the survival of the universe as a whole. However, there exists another place, hidden just where the two forces meet. Here is the Razor's Edge. Here is the place that one must go to and sustain if true realization of the mind is to be achieved. It is called the Razor's Edge, as it is difficult to keep your balance. If you slip to the right, you will be enveloped in light and your effectiveness will be hindered through petty morals projected on you from others. If you slip to the left, you will be enveloped in darkness and become a monster that will need to be destroyed. Either way, climbing back onto the Razor's Edge is near impossible. However, if one finds the inner strength to remain on the Razor's Edge then they will benefit from both sides. They will have the mental fortitude to make the decisions based on what is necessary rather than what is 'morally correct' thanks to the darkness. But, unlike if they were completely enveloped, they will still have the ability to decipher right from wrong. The energy of the light and the energy of the dark will mix. With this potent concoction, a person will function beyond optimally. They will suffer no deficiencies that those who reside only in the light or only in the dark are afflicted with. As stated before, however, one's place on the Razor's Edge is not easily maintainable. Others, both from the light and the dark, will attempt to pull you into the influence of their energy. They may promise gifts or claim you are a sinner following the wrong path, but one seeking a true grasp of one's mind must continue this path. The journey along the Razor's Edge is also taxing. Both times of extreme misery and extreme happiness will be encountered. Sickness and death will become something of your understanding. Health and survival will also become completely understood. Along this journey, you may even find other weary travelers. These people will become your friends without fail. With some, as is human nature, roadblocks may be found, but as time travels on true connections will be formed. And, finally, the path of the Razor's Edge is not something to be forced into. You will only be successful in its endeavors if the path is chosen by you and you alone. Friends will be found along the way, but the first step is always taken alone. To truly open one's mind and to escape the box that many reside in, you must walk the Razor's Edge.
