Chapter 2, Page 22, Book 16



Wherever you go, go with all your heart. 

Confucius

February 22nd - traveling the pathway of  faith

Faith makes things possible, not easy. 

Author Unknown

Life is made up of routine activities and relationships for the most part, and it gets harder and harder to stay enthusiastic when that is what consumes most of our days.  Our enthusiasms are what give us meaning and purpose in life.  

A recurring difficulty on our journey of life is becoming so focused on what we need at the moment that we forget what we already have. 


When you make a leap of faith you can accomplish almost anything you set out to do.

Your courageous leap of faith can lead you into uncharted territory, enabling you to build a new, more adventurous life.

How easy it can be to get bogged down with our obligations! When we rush through our days and lives, we fail to notice the simple beauty of living.  It's challenging to avoid giving in to the temptation to rush, particularly if you have acclimated to a world of split second communication, cell phones, email and overflowing agendas. Yet the sense of continuous accomplishment you lose when you slow down will quickly be replaced by feelings of magnificent contentment. 

By slowing down, we give ourselves the gift of time. We have time to indulge our curiosity, to enjoy the moment, to appreciate worldly wonders, to sit and think, to connect with others, and to explore our inner landscapes more fully. 


Take full account of the excellencies which you possess, and in gratitude remember how you would hanker after them, if you had them not.

Marcus Aurelius

So true to take the time to slow down and also to disconnect ourselves at times from technology. I think it is then that we truly enjoy the beauty all around us!
