'Why should anyone want to change his or her path?' Because sometimes we find that what worked to get us through adversities was ample then but has less place when adversities no longer present. If one finds themselves in a rut, the first step is to put a foot outside the 'old groove', yes?

'The liberty comes from accepting and loving your path.' This is true, in part; liberty also comes from realization that one is not obliged to keep applying 'first aid' once one is healed from transgressions. With liberty, one can regain the optimum use of one's faculties without obstruction or perceived/habitual self-sabotage.

'Rejection never leads to liberty or progress.' Depends on what one is 'rejecting'. If I reject another's dysfunction or embracing an enemy's view of me, that does lead to liberty and progress.

One needn't follow a different path, true. But there will still be enlivening twists and turns in a newer, more vital path one chooses to make.

And it does lead to a different place, actually, when one sees ways to live 'proactively' (to use a worn out cliche) rather than just 'reactively' or 'complacently'. New stars, without minds or intelligence, or choices are constantly 'born'; should we not also be continually revitalized and see what we're made of in the process?

hope i didn't bore you...just a reflection, not a mandate, obviously. :)
