Carlos Castañeda, American writer

died:  April 27, 1998  in Los Angeles

The things shamans deal with are extremely practical. They break down parameters of normal historical reality. Magical passes are just one aspect of that.

The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.

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.

  1. This is the one for me.

    The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.

    I need to remember it when I’m stressing over something (like job hunting)

  2. I love Castaneda and read all of his books years ago (not the magical passes though). I know he has been discredited but I believe there is a lot of wisdom in there.
    “In a world where death is the hunter, my friend, there is no time for regrets or doubts. There is only time for decisions.”
    A variation on living in the now, I think. 🙂

    • I read his works while at university. Discredited or not – I agree with you, that there is a lot of wisdom.
      This is a great quote. Thanks for sharing it, Wendy Kate. 🙂
