Two paths (Castaneda)

Posted in castaneda on July 4, 2010 by ewakening

All paths are the same. They lead nowhere. They are paths going into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traversed long, long paths, but I am not anywhere. Does your 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, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong, the other weakens you.

A sorcerer is in the hands of power and his only freedom is to choose an impeccable life.

A Man of Knowledge (Castaneda)

Posted in castaneda on June 1, 2007 by ewakening

“A man of knowledge chooses a path with heart and follows it; and then he looks and rejoices and laughs; and then he sees and knows. He knows that his life will be over altogether too soon; he knows that he, as well as everybody else, is not going anywhere; he knows, because he sees, that nothing is more important than anything else. In other words, a man of knowledge has no honor, no dignity, no family, no name, no country, but only life to be lived, and under these circumstances his only tie to his fellow men is his controlled folly.” (Casteneda, from A Separate Reality)
