Life Will Answer Quote of Note from Carlos Castaneda *

An observation worth noting … and pondering:

Learn to see, and then you’ll know
that there is no end to the new worlds of our vision

While biology in particular may hinder dreams we may harbor [approaching 60 years old, my hopes for playing center in the National Hockey League grow dimmer by the day], anything we still realistically believe ourselves capable of achieving remains firmly with our grasp.

Realistic can be defined broadly, and that may very well be necessary if what we still hope to achieve seems more than a bit of a stretch.

But the gift of choice we each possess in full, and the power of clear objectives and purposes—even if a stretch and then some—will still enable us to pursue our ambitions until we either succeed or choose anew. More challenging pursuits will typically call for more effort, more luck, more passion, more commitment, more belief … each and all commensurate with the depth and breadth of our objectives.

That’s neither fair nor unfair. It’s simply the process of Life working to meet our demands. Learn to see more than what seems obvious or attainable. The greater the vision, the greater the opportunities. Life Will Answer
