From time to time, I like to share some of the slightly off-the-wall letters that show up in our local paper. I think this one fits in the category of “The Maui News will print every letter it receives.”

Not sure how to interpret half of this letter, and I think I disagree with the rest.

From today’s Letters section:

Young people should understand the following:

This is your life. It does not belong to God, the devil, the state, the church, your parents or your friends. You experience the consequences of your choices. Make sure your choices are not the result of parental, societal, religious or national conditioning. Only you know who you are. No one else has any idea. No one else knows what’s best for you. Sexuality is for everyone, marriage and baby making are not. Patriotism and organized religion will part you from your life. Far better is it that you become a happy failure than a sad success. Do not support killing, for your table or your principles. Do not waste wishes on yourself. We are all on a joyous tightrope-race; lingerers are lost. You are the ultimate judge of yourself. Nothing thought about you by others is true, actual, relevant or helpful. Everyone sees everything through his or her own aura. No one, therefore, sees anyone else clearly. No matter what a person says, he is talking about himself. Your dream may come from a seed planted in you by chance, destiny, the deeds of your past or by your soul. Your dream is your map. Ask no one for directions. Tell no one of your dream. Never reveal the secrets of your heart.
