Quote of the Day – October 5 2012

““It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”
― Chuck Palahniuk”


It seems part of existence. If we’re fortunate we learn from our pain and from the lessons and road blocks we put in our path. Of course we put the easy kind gentle stuff in our path as well. According to Don Juan Matus as described by Carlos Castaneda, a warrior sees neither blessings nor curse but sees everything as a challenge. Perhaps warriors learn from it all. After all, our happiness brings lessons and challenges as well, It gives us perspective, endurance and perhaps makes the painful parts that much easier…
Blessings, G

  1. So often when I’m looking at my garden I’m looking for the weeds to pull and forget to savor the beauty of the flowers. Once I realized this I started changing my view. Yes, I still look for the weeds so I can keep my garden healthy but I also make sure to spend time enjoying the flowers. The hope is that I will change my thinking to see flowers first and enjoy them always.

    1. I think Don Juan Matus in Carlos Castaneda’s books would say to see the flowers and weeds both as challenges in their own right . Thanks Lori
