A path with a heart

Any path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you … Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself, and yourself alone, one question … Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t it is of no use.

— Carlos Castaneda

Carlos Castaneda influenced many people in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Two such people, beside myself, to have been so influenced were Fritjof Capra and Paulo Coelho.

For my lovely friend Sian to whom I read this one night.

    Interesting point Keith. And the cover of ‘The Tao of Physics’ reminds me of a sign that I saw yesterday! Thank you : )
