Would you rather: Play it Safe or See the Stars

I read this by Kierkegaard in The Attentive Life by Leighton Ford:

“A certain rich man traveled in a finely appointed carriage, with lanterns on each corner of his vehicle to light the road around and ahead. He went his way in satisfaction and security, assured that the his wealth provided him with a good life. One day along the road the rich man passed a poor peasant who had no carriage to carry him, no lamp to light his way. Yet, while the rich man pitied the poor peasant who had no money to buy all the creatures comforts, the poor peasant could see the stars, which the rich man missed because he was blinded by his lamps.”

So what is blinding you from seeing the stars?
