Quote of the Day – January 20 2012

“When you’re touched by magic, nothing’s ever quite the same again. What really makes me sad is all those people who never have the chance to know that touch. They’re too busy, or they just don’t hold with make-believe, so they shut the door without really knowing it was there to be opened in the first place.”

Quote of the Day – December 23 2011

“Remember the quiet wonders. The world has more need of them than it has for warriors.”
–Charles de Lint

That’s not to say there’s not a place for warriors. Warriors of Light illuminating the darkness. Shadow Warriors to expose the light. Peaceful warriors to live the truth. Yet we need our sunrises, and rainbows, the dreams of five year olds and the millions of other every day things that enlivens and inspires us.
Namaste G

Quote of the Day-December 8 2011

“Let me give you some advice: Try to approach things without preconceived ideas, without supposing you already know everything there is to know about them. Get that trick down and you’ll be surprised at what’s really all around you.”
― Charles de Lint

Approaching things without preconceived ideas seems like such a hard thing to do. Lately I’ve been noticing how difficult it can be to navigate around someone’s personal dogma.
Personal dogma, I’ll define as the set of ideas and concepts that any given person has about reality (be it religious, political or social) around which they cannot or will not budge. Challenges to personal dogma end up freaking the person out and causes the brain to stop working. I mean it could be something fairly universal, i.e. “People should not kick puppies or babies”, or belonging to a set group “Jesus died for our sins”, or singular “Peggy Sue Anderson gives the best tongue baths of anyone I’ve ever met”
More on personal dogma tomorrow… Namaste — GAR
