“if I’ve stopped making mistakes, does that mean I’m on the right path?” Ba Bow!! No, it means you aren’t participating. And though you aren't having to deal with mistakes initially, later you'll notice that it's not satisfying. We humans are built for growth and development.
You may notice attempts from our loving, intelligent universe to get your attention. We have urges which prod us to new horizons and creations. It may be a new job, new tastes in cooking, that next picture or computer game... it can be a million things, tiny or huge. We feel compelled to move forward. And when we do there is more life in us. Freshness. New growth in us that sparkles for all to enjoy.
