This video is a follow-up to another titled "The Road Ahead" (link below). Where the original video attempts to share some life experience related to choices we sometimes must make in the early decades of life which may have dramatic impact on our later quality of living. After posting the video a very well considered response in comments was offered by YouTube user "7Highlander". This current video was made as a means of sharing and talking about the observations and ideas of 7Highlander which I believe are an excellent answer to anyone struggling with the road ahead in their own life. Quoted below are the collected comments from 7Highlander as well as related links. My thanks to 7Highlander for taking the time to share and offer advice on this important topic.

Comment from 7Highlander to the video "The Road Ahead":

I think I see a small (but important) flaw in your reasoning. You mention about 'what if' you had chosen someone with more of an adventurous streak. The problem with this is that adventure or travel or conversing - these things are more activities than character traits. The Important thing you mentioned is that your wife is a good person (character) and you are a good person. Therefore, you both share the most important character trait, which is what kind of people you are. For instance, If two people can love basketball, or spelunking and may share those interests. However, that doesn't mean they're right for each other. This is because they may have different characters. One may be a good person and the other may be a scoundrel. However, let's say two people share absolutely no interests or activities yet they both are kind, considerate, and want the best for their children. If these kinds of character is the same then the interests can be worked out. However, if the character is really different i.e. Good person and bad persons. Then this can never work. It is far easier to find someone with the same interests than to end up with someone with similar character and character traits. Heck, a google search can find people with interests in similar activities. But this is meaningless since people who like the same activity may have polar opposite natures. So i would say that the important distinction for this person to make is what is meant by "differences". If they differ on hobbies, activities, philosophies, even dreams or aspirations - so the heck what . These things can all be figured out, so long as the couple is coming from the same place in terms of character. But if by "differences", the person means character - if one is good and the other is bad (and I know there are more options but just to make the point) If one is considerate of others and the other is cruel and sadistic, those differences matter.

The Path of Wildness is easy to find
The course of a stream
Leaves blown in the wind
A beast's track through the brush
And the direction of our first inclination

The Path of Wildness is an answer and response to a prescribed way of life which may leave some individuals with a sense that their living is little more than a series of pre-determined, step-like episodes between birth and death. The stages of living between these events: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, parenthood and senior are themselves natural and in accord with the needs of the species and most individuals. Many find their satisfaction in living this course and to these individuals I have little or nothing to say. Others though long for something more; something innate, genetic and seemingly calling. Adventure and change can give a degree of satisfaction and relief yet even these may seem too tame. To those who feel drawn to something beyond the entertainment and stimulation of senses I offer a walk along The Path of Wildness. Don't bother penciling the event in your schedule, preparing a pack with goodies and supplies or even inviting a friend along, for this experience is along the course of your first inclination and you must surely always go alone.
