Listening to: I think I was obligated to choose this -- another of my favorite male voices.
Today's Bliss Formula: A properly lazy Sunday with Frog. Weather permitting, a bike ride to the water seems to be called for. And some reading and bird watching. Perhaps, if we feel very ambitious, we will pull a few weeds -- but no more, just a few.
Follow your bliss and doors will open where there were no doors before.
I'll tell you right now, the doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door; if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.
--Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.
I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.
