I am a man.
All my understanding and overstanding comes from my relationship with everything. I take what I see is good and I leave what I see is not good. I reason with many and I take what makes sense and I leave the rest. I choose all the time. I feel comfortable enough to choose and learn from my own mistakes. My good/god is in me and alive so I listen to my heart and follow and when I do not listen to my heart after considering all else I suffer. If your god is the same as the one in me then I am still following the one in me first. If you say something that is good, it is I who may choose to take it based on my thinking. I am not following anything because someone else say so and cannot prove how it is better that what I know.
Following someone could be an act of courage providing I have sufficient reason to want a different experience and I trust the person who is giving me directions. I remain choosing for myself all the time.
