People tend to skim the surface, with many things.
Say with intuition – people new to intuition get the first hit and then that’s it. But because they don’t want to face the tension, the unveiling of that which is hidden, they don’t sink in deeper. But the deeper you go, the more juicier it gets – that’s where the gold is hidden. Your mind, however, wants to skim the surface, skip and glance over things, get distracted.
