Are you a follower, or are you really yourself?

Many of us go through our lives learning much from others, and following other's paths.

This article tries to show the reader, that they must always blaze, and fashion their own path through their own life, that is, if they are to make it through being true to themselves.

Jewish Rabbi's share their wisdom

Rabbi Breschky used to say to his followers that he was no follower of God.

When they questioned him as to what exactly he meant by this, he would then reply, ”Followers of God are not lovers of God, because to love God, you must always blaze your own trail to him, despite all of the trails that he has left there on the Earth to beguile you with."

"Always be your own person, first," he would then add.

A follower only knows what he thinks that he knows. A real person knows what he says from his own knowing's, not from what he has merely learnt from other people.

One who thinks that they know will gladly enter Hell to have the chance of telling the inhabitants there what they know. They do not realise that they are going towards Hell too because their false knowing is taking them there. They are on the path to Hell. All paths lead to Hell, except for your own true path, of which, only it can take you into Heaven.

Rabbi Mendel once said this: “If I am I because I am I, and you are you because you
are you, then I am I and you are you. But if I am I because you are you, and you are you because I am I, then I am not I, and you are not you.”

Let love be your only guide

Poetry: Let love guide you

Love lives in you empty,
until you live in it full.

What you can do is not
to do what you cannot do.


We should wait until ready.
We should not attempt fate.

I don't know what I can do,
but I should know what not to do.


Life progresses in stages.
Love unfolds in you as you.

Let love guide you in life.
Love knows what to do for you.


Every person has a purpose.
All of us know what to do.
Your soul is full of God's love,
telling you how to be you as you.
