What is my belief?

I can never do justice in translating this beautiful poem by Kuvempu, but yes here is my humble attempt. Please excuse me I am not able to convey it properly, but yes this is my belief. And this is where I want to begin.

ಒ ನನ್ನ ಚೇತನ
ಆಗು ನೀ ಅನಿಕೇತನ (1)
Oh my dear self
You be beyond having abodes(1)
ರೂಪ ರೂಪಗಳನು ದಾಟಿ
ಭಾವ ಕೋಟಿಗಳನು ಮೀಟಿ
ಎದೆಯ ಬಿರಿಯೆ ಭಾವ ಧೀಟಿ
ಆಗು ಆಗು ಆಗು(2)
Go through different ideologies, experience them all!!
Go through different emotions,let them not shackle you!!
Be expressive,do not hide your emotions !!
Continue updating again and again!! (2)
ನೂರು ಮತದ ಹೊಟ್ಟತೂರಿ
ಎಲ್ಲ ತತ್ತ್ವದೆಲ್ಲೆ ಮೀರಿ
ನಿರ್ಧಿಗಂತವಾಗಿ ಏರಿ
ಆಗು ಆಗು ಆಗು(3)
Be aware of hundred schools of thoughts !!
Take the best out of them!!
And grow beyond the skys!!
Continue updating again and again!! (3)
ಎಲ್ಲಿಯೂ ನಿಲ್ಲದಿರು
ಮನೆಯನೆಂದು ಕಟ್ಟದಿರು
ಕೊನೆಯನೆಂದು ಮುಟ್ಟದಿರು
ಓ ಅನಂತವಾಗಿರು(4)
Dont stop any where!!
Dont ever take a permanent shelter and stagnate your growth!!
Limit is a farce, dont think you reached the end!
Be everchanging, Be Infinite (4)
ಅನಂತ ತಾನನಂತವಾಗಿ
ಆಗುತಿಹನೆ ನಿತ್ಯಯೋಗಿ
ಅನಂತ ನೀನನಂತವಾಗು
ಆಗು ಆಗು ಆಗು(5)
Those who already are infinite,
Will be always one with their internal selves
You also be infinite(5)

Why I question?

To laugh is to risk appearing fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach for another is to risk involvement.
To expose your ideas, your dreams,
before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To believe is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken, because the
greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The people who risk nothing, do nothing,
have nothing, are nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow,
but they cannot learn, feel, change,
grow, love, live.
Chained by their attitudes they are slaves;
they have forfeited their freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.
