Going deeper means having to deal with the darkness that exists in all of us. It can be a terrifying journey. You are leaving the saftey and warmth of the surface, not sure what you will find.
Also, you can't take anyone with. It's a solo dive. And after a certain depth, there is no turning back. You are too far deep (and too woke) to go back.
Like a rollercoaster ride deep into your own heart. The only thing you can do is buckle up and surrender to the majesty of The Universe. And definitely don't forget to open your eyes. No matter how scary, you don't want to miss the view. That's sort of the whole point.
