Richard Bach, Illusions

Posted 02/24/2010 at 09:42 AM by superkat

Whenever i feel like i've lost my way, or start questioning circumstances or my purpose in life...i refer to Illusions, by Richard Bach. Here are a couple of quotes for you:

~You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self. Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.
You're always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past.

~The simplest questions are the most profound.

Where were you born?
Where is your home?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?

Think about these once in awhile, and watch your answers change.

~The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.
Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.

~There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts.

~You are never given a wish without being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.

~The truth you speak has no past and no future. It is, and that's all it needs to be.

There are many more...each one is so profound...all of them resonate the qualities of self-worth, integrity, honesty and living life to its fullest.
