The path the ancients cleared has closed. And the other path, everyone's path, Easy and wide, goes nowhere. I am alone and find my way. —ancient Sanskrit verse adapted by Octavio Paz
1. Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions.
Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there... to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but when you lock eyes with them, you know that every moment that you are with them, they will affect your life in some profound way. Sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, will power or heart. Everything happens for a reason! Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul.
