Re: Un Camino que Tiene Corazón

Thanks Ross. That is a thoughtful and subtle article.

This is a nice translation of the Castaneda quote at the top of your article.

I don't think it's necessary or desirable to practise failure or dependency. But we should practise despite them.

I like the link between inspiration and respiration as we travel looking, looking, breathlessly.

And - still in a Spanish mood - this is from a beautiful love poem by Pablo Neruda that also talks about the heart and the road:

I have said that you sang in the wind
like the pines and like the masts.
Like them you are tall and taciturn,
and you are sad, all at once, like a voyage.

You gather things to you like an old road.
You are peopled with echoes and nostalgic voices.
I awoke and at times birds fled and migrated
that had been sleeping in your soul.

English version

Spanish original

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
