When you sense your path in life is, in nature, not yet a path. Not knowing the destination, it remains understood that you will create your own. This is because what you long to accomplish is not accessible through traditional pathways.
Individuals who routinely travel down traditional pathways will not openly advise you to go off the beaten track. It is, knowingly or unknowingly in their nature.
It is important to engage in reflection to ensure the directions you are following are rooted in your own instinct, and not in anyone else's inherent, projected views.
