Everyone has different personalities, perspectives. Everyone will tell you to do something according to themselves. If you listen to them only, hear the concepts they are telling you but do not look and see truth for yourself, you will have lived life according to a set of dead concepts given by others. But you are a wonderful being of creativity, you can look at any situation, and get to the bottom of it if you desire. You can be aware moment to moment and gain insight about life, first hand understanding and wisdom about everything. You can look at life and yourself and discover what you truly want to create and then do what is necessary to bring that into life. The most important thing is to be aligned with truth, to be true to yourself, honestly and sincerely live your life to the best of your ability. An activity could be good for you in a certain moment but bad for another because for you, that would be aligned, and for them they would better be somewhere else. Find yourself, be yourself, know yourself. Some will say follow your heart, yes, the heart is a location where love flows within us. Go beyond concepts thought and taught by others and discover truth yourself by living it moment to moment with awareness. You can hear others, and use their advice as pointers to experiences, but you yourself is the one who should look and see what you truly want to focus on in a certain moment. You have inner guidance, discover this more and more by being true to yourself.
