Think back to your childhood. Have you ever read a book that shook your worldview to the point where you felt like a different person?
For me it was after reading To a God Unknown by John Steinbeck. A man believes his late father’s spirit is living in a tree, and he finds a higher power in a moss covered rock next to a stream.
What it meant to me was the importance of forming your own beliefs, no matter how radical. And to have the conviction to stand by those beliefs no matter how difficult the current situation.
