Don't follow another's dogma; be your own song
Eastman follows with, "The Hindu poet Tagore wrote, 'I have spent my days stringing and restringing my instrument while the song I came to sing remains unsung.' In essence, living is about making sure your song doesn’t go unsung. And this is as true for families, and for communities, and for churches, as it is for individuals."
He also quotes Steve Jobs of Apple Computers who told a graduating class, "Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.They somehow already know what you want to become. Everything else is secondary."
