If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Learning

hand holding spark

Usually when we hear or read something new, we just compare it to our own ideas. If it is the same, we accept it and say that it is correct. If it is not, we say it is incorrect. In either case, we learn nothing.    Thich Nhat Hanh

  1. Love this quote.
    It does coincide with my pondering just now.

  2. The secret is not to judge or vacate our judgment as quickly as possible. Focus on the breath and observe the stimulus without judging it. The landscape will clear and this moment appears in its entirety.

    this moment is all we have so it is almost miraculous the shift that occurs.

  3. I’m really enjoying your quotes! Going to reblog this one…. thanks! 🙂
