Infinite ignorance and corruption. You have being (on a scale of Being to existence). "If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there." (Psalm 139:8).
An option: turn from darkness or ignorance to Light. This is Job's tenacity toward the Good.
Presently, the more accurate scenario is: degrees of energy-veiling, and ever-standing just beyond the veil are numberless numbers of Saints, Angels, and Cosmic Beings who have infinite Love and desire for your salvation/enlightenment.
Calling upon them allows them to draw nigh to your own Higher Self, help it to bestow Love and teaching unto you. There are also more definite tactics, such as in a moment of Solar Energy burning up even thousands of years of erring, and such as asking Archangel Michael, Christ Jesus, and other Beings to bring to your spiritual self floodtides of Truth in Love.
The design of man is to Self-realize, and bring that realization into the Oneness, God. In that, both God and man gain.
