"All who wander are not lost." I love that saying, though I don't know its origin. You're not alone. I've switched churches several times, and now religions. To some, I may seem rootless, isolated, lost... To me, it's like a treasure hunt. And if one path leads you to an outhouse or a snake pit instead of the pot of gold, what do you do? Try another path!!
Is cutting your own path a bad thing? Think of it. Most every modern religion started with one person. One person who cut their own, unorthodox path.
I think Rick's advice was meant for me, too. I get too worried about having all the answers, or making sense out of things that seem senseless, like earthquakes, cancer, poverty, and death. Those things are very real and pressing issues, but how many sunrises have I ignored while trying to figure out how many angels could dance on the end of a pin, so to speak? What happens when we bite the big bazooka is anyone's guess, but why not enjoy the time we have?
