I used to focus so much on things that were never meant to be the focal point. First, I focused on them because I believed they were right, then, because they were wrong. In reality, the purpose of life is so much bigger than those trivial details. You can live religiously, but there is no life there. You can live flippantly, but there is no life there either. There is no life because neither of them originates from within you. To find life you must risk the feelings that emerge from within and act on them. You must risk that making mistakes or being wrong is inevitable and that these are not failures, but moments of growth. If there is no risk, then there is no life. Then we are reduced to formulas and scientific practice.
