How To Know Which Is The Right Path?

"There are many paths to enlightenment.
Be sure to take one with a heart." ~Lao Tzu
In truth, you already know everything you need to know.  
Put aside your fear and allow your knowledge to come forth.


  1. Your post has come at a time when I needed that little encouragement!

  2. @YS - thanks, I'm glad of it.
    ...and makes wonder if I didn't write this post because I needed that little encouragement too!

  3. Lao Tzu makes us think. I don't think I will ever be truly enlightened. But I have found contentment in some aspects of my life, and looking back, I guess I did know where I would find it (before I found it). Now, if I could find that same contentment in other aspects of my life where it is often lacking, I would be very pleased indeed. Thanks for a timely post.

  4. "In truth, you already know everything you need to know." That reminds me of the last two lines from Ode on a Grecian Urn, by John Keats:

    "Beauty is truth, truth beauty," - that is all
    Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

  5. @ MikeB - You're welcome! And here's to continuing on your journey till you have contentment, in all aspects!
    re: Keats...nice segue.

  6. In your response to YogaSavy you talk about needing some encouragement yourself. Whatever you may be dealing with, I wish you a safe and rewarding journey on your road to discovery. In short:

    May all the obstacles that block your way
    Fade softly in the breeze, so you'll not stray.

  7. With much gratitude MikeB, for your kind words!

  8. This morning, I clicked on the picture of the very pretty model on your website, and . . . I saw many models. I made some of the model images and design images larger, and I read about your work. I just want to tell you that I think your scarf designs are beautiful.
