A good advice does to your character what a good season does to your body: help it thrive. An unprepared body gets sick when the next season arises, likewise an unseasoned character when it receives next-level advice.
Naturally, every general advice is a shot in the dark, no matter how proficient the shooter. Also, every truth is a half-truth. Yet sometimes, having an ill truth is still better than no truth.
On that note, consider the following advice: Forget about your True Will! Do what you want, yes, but do not be overly concerned with what to do.
Sometimes, I do better when I forget the bigger picture, forget my vision, forget my purpose, forget my life.
How much meaning can you get out of—or put into—that which you are already doing? Every second spent thinking what greater deeds you could do is a second spent not doing your best.
Do you sometimes neglect your duties as a man because your eyes keep searching for a greater purpose instead of looking at the task in front of you? A daydreamer is no good. That is a seasonal warning right there.
Sometimes when I dream, I grind my knife, and then I take it and set out into the world and murder a furious dragon. Other times when I dream, I grind my knife, and then I wake up and realize that I was just escaping reality and the duties I must fulfill right here, right now.
Freedom through strength is not freedom from duties, not freedom to slack off, unless one’s True Will is to be worthless.
Sure, there is a time to ask, “How can I do what I will?”
At other times, however, we shall ask, “How can I express my will in doing what I do?”
