There are countless maps of our internal experiences of self, and they all offer unique forms of guidance and support along the inward path. These maps should be used with care, and a traveler should always remember the distinction between the map and the actual terrain.
Some maps are designed to familiarize you with the terrain itself, and others to help you see where you've been and where you're going. All have their own languages and their own "map keys." It's important to keep this in context as you explore.
