Awakened in context

To know yourself as an awakened individual is also to know yourself as the being of the surrounding context.

Open to enlightenment

Change people by opening them up to a new dimension of reality. Everyone has the potential for enlightenment if you are open to them. Accept the other person's reality if you are going to communicate with them; otherwise, you are just playing a word game.

-- Gridley Wright (1934-1979)

Paths and paths (Castaneda)

All paths are the same. They lead nowhere. They are paths going into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traversed long, long paths, but I am not anywhere. Does your path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere, but one has a heart, the other doesn't. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong, the other weakens you.

-- Carlos Castaneda
