A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on emptiness and life

There's no emptiness in the life of a warrior. Everything is filled to the brim. Everything is filled to the brim, and everything is equal.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on gifts, learning, and world

Nothing in this world is a gift. Whatever must be learned must be learned the hard way.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on heart, life, and path

A warrior chooses a path with heart, any path with heart, and follows it; and then he rejoices and laughs. He knows because he sees that his life will be over altogether too soon. He sees that nothing is more important than anything else.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on worry

in

Once a man worries, he clings to anything out of desperation; and once he clings he is bound to get exhausted or to exhaust whomever or whatever he is clinging to. A warrior-hunter, on the other hand, knows he will lure game into his traps over and over again, so he doesn't worry.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on heart, journeys, work, and path

All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. However, a path without a heart is never enjoyable. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy-it does not make a warrior work at liking it; it makes for a joyful journey; as long as a man follows it, he is one with it.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on awareness, choice, day, death, facts, life, world, and path

We talk to ourselves incessantly about our world. In fact we maintain our world with our internal talk. And whenever we finish talking to ourselves about ourselves and our world, the world is always as it should be. We renew it, we rekindle it with life, we uphold it with our internal talk. Not only that, but we also choose our paths as we talk to ourselves. Thus we repeat the same choices over and over until the day we die, because we keep on repeating the same internal talk over and over until the day we die. A warrior is aware of this and strives to stop his internal talk.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on feeling and needs

Feeling important makes one heavy, clumsy and vain. To be a warrior one needs to be light and fluid.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on life, perfection, and spirit

If his spirit is distorted he should simply fix it-purge it, make it perfect-because there is no other task in our entire lives which is more worthwhile...To seek the perfection of the warrior's spirit is the only task worthy of our temporariness, our manhood.
