Note: The following quotes are from a small book by Wayne Dyer called "Staying on the Path". I love just blindly opening the book to any page and reading. Invariably, I find what I need to know in that moment. This procedure will work with any book for that matter; if you ask for guidance, it will come.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

    ~ Staying on the Path ~

    Your circumstances do not determine
    what your life will be;
    they reveal what kinds of images you
    have chosen up until now.

    To change yourself,
    look at what you fear
    and what you hate.
    Start There.

    We are all at once teachers and learners
    in every encounter of our lives.

    What's over is over.
    You did what you knew how to do.
    It wasn't right or wrong or good or bad.
    It just was. But all you've got is today.
    You can't have it back.

    You're always alone,
    but you're only lonely if you don't like
    the person you're alone with.

    Your love is located within you.
    It is yours to nurture and savor.
    It is yours to give in any way you choose.
    This is true for others as well.

    If someone you love fails to return
    the love the way you would like it returned,
    that is the other person's choice.
    It doesn't at all detract from your love.

    Whatever is going on inside of you
    is up to you. You own it all.
    It's yours.

    Get your nose out of everybody else's garden.
    Get your own in order, and stop focusing on
    everybody else's. Grow what you want to grow
    in your garden.

    All that you need
    in order to have total happiness,
    fulfilllment, and love in your life
    you already have right now,
    whoever you are, wherever you are.

    Everything I ever worried about
    turned out exactly as it was going to
    despite my worry moments
    to the contrary.

    You mustn't attempt to will anything.
    You need only be willing.

    There is a rhythm to the universe.
    When we are able to get quiet enough,
    we experience how we are a part of that
    perfect rhythm.

    Advance confidently in the direction
    of your dreams to live the life that
    you have imagined.
    That's when you have success.

    Each of us has a well of infinite depth
    within us, which contains more potential
    for creativity than we can
    ever imagine.

    No one can depress you.
    No one can make you anxious. No one
    can hurt your feelings. No one can make
    you anything other than what
    you allow inside.

    With everything
    that has happened to you,
    you can either feel sorry for yourself,
    or treat what has happened as a gift.
    Everything is either an opportunity to grow
    or an obstacle to keep you from growing.
    You get to choose.

    When you argue for your limitations,
    all you get are your

    Live...Be you...Enjoy...Love.
