“Do whatever it takes-meditate, exercise, pray, read, write, listen to music, whatever you find that works-to ignite your awareness daily. You will create and contribute to life as you have never contributed before.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch

It is a simple matter of what you will do when the chips are down, my friend. When the fat lady is singing. When the walls are falling in, and the sky is dark, and the ground is rumbling. In that moment our actions will define us. And it makes no difference whether you are being watched by Allah, Jesus, Buddha, or whether you are not. On cold days a man can see his breath, on a hot day he can’t. On both occasions, the man breathes. ~ Zadie Smith
