The significance of one's life-long dedication to a chosen path should be self-determined. Outsiders' views and criticisms fall short of the essence. As one's conscience stays clear upon reflections, one naturally remains at ease constantly. Single-mindedly and whole-heartedly from beginning till end, one stays far away from worries and sorrows.
