follow the heart ~

    Newer Older

    Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself, and yourself alone, one question . . . Does this 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.
    Carlos Castaneda

      Wonderful image - Lovely harmonious and complimentary colours. I love the way the textures both add detail but also submerge and blend the seeker and the path to enlightenment. Inspiring Zen art work and quotation !

      Thank you :)

      I will definitely add a link to your pic and let you know if i do end up using it. It is a corporate website to bring mindfulness in business so it needs to convey mindfulness but very subtly.....
