“It is Never Too Late”


“It is never too late to turn on the light.  Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn’t depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn’t depend on how long you’ve held on to the old view.

When you flip the switch in that attic, it doesn’t matter whether it’s been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades.

The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn’t see before.

It’s never too late to take a moment to look.”    (Sharon Salzberg)




“Once on a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.”   (Robert Hunter)




“Light must come from inside.  You cannot ask the darkness to leave; you must turn on the light.”   (Sogyal Rinpoche)




“It is easy.  Just once a day, imagine the life you dream of.  Believe that it can be yours in this world of magic and miracles.  Choose to live as if you know of its inevitable manifestation. Don’t compromise.  Don’t worry.  Don’t look for results.  And as surely as spirit crafts one moment after another, so too will it fuse together the life you now lead with the life of your dreams as if they were two pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, destined to become one.

This alone determines what’s ‘meant to be.’

Tallyho,    (signed)    The Universe”    (Notes from the Universe, Mike Dooley, September 15, 2016)




“How do we forgive ourselves for all of the things we did not become?”   (David ‘Doc’ Luben, ’14 Lines from Love Letters or Suicide Notes’)




“Someday, somewhere – anywhere, unfailingly, you’ll find yourself, and that, and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life.”   (Pablo Neruda)
