CHOOSING A PATH WITH HEART

Even though all of us are connected to each other and to all things, we do indeed each choose which path to follow. Personally, I feel that eventually all paths leads to the same result. And that result is merging back into the One Consciousness from whence we all came from. Of course, that is only my humble opinion and that is a moot point for sure. But we all do choose the path we wish to take and those paths will be filled with many a twist and turn. I would like to share with you the following passage from Carlos Castaneda's book titled "The Wheel of Time". In the passage the character Don Juan is speaking. "Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore, a warrior must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if he feels he should not follow it, he must not stay with it under any conditions. His decision to keep on that path or to leave it must be free of fear or ambition. He must look at every path closely and deliberately. There is a question that a warrior has to ask, mandatorily: Does this path have a heart?
 "All Paths are the same: They lead nowhere. However, a path without a heart is never enjoyable. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy-it does not make a warrior work at liking it; it makes for a joyful journey; as long a s a man follows it, he is one with it".
My sincere hope for all of you is that the path you have chosen for the moment is one with heart. One that indeed brings you much love, much joy, and much peace. If your path, on the other hand, lacks heart I hope you soon will see that it is time for a change. Sometimes a seeming simple path can indeed bring one back to the road to joy. A path that entails one to do as much good for this world as they do for themselves can often times be a great start on finding that path that does have heart. May I be bold enough to suggest that right now, while you can, just reach out and do a kind deed for someone and aspire to become part of life's solution. I leave you with thoughts of love, peace, and joy. Remember to enjoy this one Eternal Moment! Give love, accept love, be love, for that is all any of us really are.
