For people who care about living an authentic life, a big and ever present question is, “How do I know I’m on the right track?” First, we have to assume that there’s a right track, otherwise why care about how we want to live? I believe there is a right track, but its shape and direction is between you and your Source.
Sometimes our track (or path, if you will) happens to coincide with what society wants, but that isn’t primary. The most important thing is that we remain true to our path. Maybe from a God’s eye view we can see how all of our different paths intertwine with each other, but from our human perspective, we can only focus on our own path in good faith.
My path is about being self-confident. Other people have their own paths to take. Let’s not get side-tracked by trying to walk someone’s else’s path.
