Why reinvent the Wheel?
One does not set out on a journey without knowing the destination and having a map on how to get there. It would be pointless to get a road map in Los Angeles which tells you the way to New York and then just drive whichever way the impulse takes you, saying all roads lead to New York. They don't. Better to follow the directions of one who has travelled The Way before you. All roads do not lead to New York (or Rome as the case may be). Alternatively, why follow the directions to anywhere if you don't want to get to the particular destination. The whole Path of the Buddha is laid out solely to lead to the Destination (Nibbana)
