choices

A Quote by Blessed Theophylact on god, christianity, kingdom, heaven, happiness, life, souls, heart, choices, and faith

The kingdom of God is always present for him who desires and wills it.  When a man's disposition and way of life are like that of an angel, most assuredly this is the kingdom of God.  For God indeed is said to rule as King when nothing worldly meddles in the governing of our souls and when in every respect we live not in this world.  This manner of life we have within us, that is to say, we have within us when we desire and will of it.  We do not need to wait a long time, or until our departure from this life; instead, faith and a God-pleasing life, which accompanies faith, are very near us.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on life, choice, education, degrees, school, and choices

Most of my friends, and most of my friends' children, also have degrees. That doesnt mean that they've managed to find the kind of work they wanted. Not at all.

They went to university because someone, at a time when universities were important, said that, in order to rise in the world, you had to have a degree.

And thus the world was deprived of some excellent gardeners, bakers, antique dealers, sculptors, and writers. Perhaps this is the moment to review the situation. Doctors, engineers, scientists, and lawyers need to go to university, but does everyone?

I'll let these lines by Robert Frost provide the answer:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

A Quote by Gabrielle Roth on brown eyes, choices, courage, ears, granddaughter, grandmother, headaches, imagination, medicine, natural medicine, and shape

I've also used my imagination to help others heal themselves.  I once went to visit a Hopi rattke maker in Arizona.  It took all of my intuitive powers to find her house up high in the mountains, having to make choices of which way to go every hundred feet or so.  When I arrived, her granddaughter was crying in pain, holding her ears.  She had had a terrible earache for twenty-four hours.  Instinctively, I approached the five-year-old and told her, "I'm going to put my hand on your ear and take away the pain.  I want you to see the pain.  What does it look like?  What shape is it?  What color?  What does it sound like?  Does it smell?  How would you feel if you touched it?  Now I want you to imagine it leaving your ear and entering my hand."  She looked up at me with huge brown eyes full of trust.  I put my hand on her ear, held it there a few minutes, and then ran to the door and blew the pain out of my hand and closed the door.  Within seconds the pain was gone.  Her grandmother, the rattle maker, stood there grinning from ear to ear.  "That's what my grandfather would have done," she said, "He was a shaman."

In a few minutes, the room seemed to fill with people.  Someone placed a chair in the middle of the room and people took turns sitting in it, asking for a healing.  Headaches, sores, back pains, and so on.  In each case I trusted myself to do what came naturally.  It's a day I'll never forget, as I discovered the range of my healing powers as they were drawn out by people for whom healing power was natural medicine.

Imagination is powerful.  Imagination is healing.  All you need is the courage to visualize what should be, and then give yourself to its creation.  The result may not be what you expected, but it will be right.

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on belief, proof, atheist, life, and choices

When people refuse to see proof, they think their belief helps them so much that losing it will cost more, then they gain from a perhaps more truthfull story.
I can tell you it is not, but one will never see that when in doubt.

And basicly, our choices of what to believe in life, makes our life the way it is now. We are shaped by the beliefs we choose to carry.

there comes a time in every man's life when he wakes up drunk on the toilet and begins to doubt the choices he has made. and when that time comes at least twice a day, every day.  something needs to be done.
