“Waiting for a Magical Day? Pick a Path with Heart”


“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”         (Joseph Campbell)



“I know what it’s like.  I’ve seen it played out a zillion times.  You’re waiting for that magical day when someone makes the connection and recognizes who you really are.  Maybe they’ll first catch the sparkle in your eye.  Or perhaps they’ll marvel at your insights and the depth of your spirit. Someone who will help you connect the dots, believe in yourself, and make sense of it all. Someone who will understand you, approve of you, and unhesitatingly give you a leg up so that life can pluck your ready, ripened self from the branch of magnificence.  Well, I’m here to tell you, your wait is over.  That someone, is you.”     (‘Notes from the Universe,’ ©Mike Dooley)



“Every positive change — every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness — involves a rite of passage.  Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation.  I have never found an exception.”    (Dan Millman)



“Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility . . .  In the final analysis, the one quality that all successful people have is the ability to take on responsibility.”       (Michael Korda)



“All paths are the same, leading nowhere.  Therefore, pick a path with heart!  . . . Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question:  Does this path have a heart?  If it does, then the path is good.  If it doesn’t, it is of no use.”        (Carlos Castaneda)
