Spirituality & Metaphysics
I am a spiritual seeker and have been involved in personal and spiritual growth since I was a teen. I have studied spirituality and metaphysical principles with many teachers and guides including the Concept Synergy material. While I rely on experience for validation, if you are science minded I refer you to the teachings of Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Greg Braden, the Chopra Centers, articles at Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology ~ ACEP at energypsych.org, and the HeartMath Institute.
I’m consciously participating in the spiritual awakening process and open to working with anyone that is experiencing, or simply wanting to discuss, humanity’s shift from human being to spiritual being.
THE PATH WITH A HEART
Taken from: The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge by Carlos Castaneda
It is the consistent choice of the path with heart which makes a warrior different from the average man. He knows that a path has heart when he is one with it, when he experiences a great peace and pleasure in traversing its length.
Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions. To have such clarity you must lead a disciplined life. Only then will you know that 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 to do. But your decision to keep on the path or to leave it
must be free of fear or ambition. I warn you. Look at every path closely and
deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary.
This question is one that only a very old man asks. My benefactor told me about it once when I was young, and my blood was too vigorous for me to understand it. Now I understand it. I will tell you what it is; does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart and the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it you are one with it. The other makes you curse your life. One makes you strong. The other weakens you.
Today I am neither a warrior or a diablero. For me there is only the traveling
on the paths that have a heart, on any path that may have a heart. There I
travel, and the only worthwhile challenge for me is to traverse its full length.
And there I travel, looking, looking breathlessly. on any path that may have a heart.
