Whose Path Are You Walking?
by PAULO COELHO on JULY 7, 2012
Have you ever had others criticize you for the path in life you have been called to walk, be it spiritual, career, lifestyle, and so on?
Often those who tend to have the greatest opposition to the pathway we walk are family and friends. Of course this can be extended to include religious institutions, political parties, and cultural traditionalists as well — many of which make no bones about it, priding themselves on believing that their way is the only way.
It can be incredibly difficult to separate from the “herd” and go our own way when it goes against the grain of the herd mentality (or majority) and yet, if we don’t, we know there is a part of us that will slowly begin to die.
Call it spirit, soul, life force, or what you may, there is that within us that knows who it is we’ve come here to be and what it is we’ve come here to do and if we don’t listen to its call, it begins to wane.
This is when life becomes more about enduring until we die rather than thriving while we are here.
Perhaps what our critics don’t understand is that beneath the layer of what they may refer to as “choice,” there lies another layer where lives the authentic self, and its voice perpetually whispers ever so softly in our inner ear, “Be who you are and you’ll find freedom, fullness of expression, joy, peace, purpose and meaning in this precious life you have been given.”
This voice beckons us to be true to ourselves; when we hear and listen to that voice, it’s not so much that we are then guided to choose a certain path in life but, in truth, realize that our path has chosen us.
The voice to which I refer is incapable of guiding us in a direction that is self-destructive or harmful to others or that in any way dishonors the sacredness of life, because it is life itself that beckons us.
Minsan...mapapaisip ka talaga, kung ano nga ba ang dapat...kung ano nga ba ang tama....and I guess, sarili mo lang ang makakapagsabi kung ano ang nararapat sa yo....hindi ibang tao....of course...no one is so good that you will know everything...you will still need guidance, advice....thoughts from someone....but in the end...desisyon mo pa rin...ang dadaanan sa buhay...we were given Free Will....it is for us to learn to exercise that TRUST that the Lord has given us.
If God believes in us so much...then why can't we believe in ourselves to face life?

The kingdom of this world
by PAULO COELHO on JULY 16, 2012
An old hermit was once invited to visit the court of the most powerful king of the day.
“I envy a holy man, who is content with so little,” commented the sovereign.
“I envy Your Majesty, who is content with less than I.
“I have the music of the celestial spheres,
“I have the rivers and mountains of the whole wide world,
“I have the moon and the sun, because I have God in my soul.
“Your Majesty, however, has only this kingdom.”
