Things to Think About - To Be or Not To Be--Miserable

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier


To Be or Not To Be--Miserable

Carlos Castaneda was an immensely popular author, selling more than 28 million books in 17 languages. His journey was one of man’s search for a deeper meaning in life and he became a very charismatic, if not somewhat controversial philosopher.  In an interview with TIME magazine, the writer described him as, "an enigma wrapped in a mystery wrapped in a tortilla".

The mystery of Castaneda, notwithstanding, he did have a way of condensing some poignant truths about life into memorable and thought provoking quotes, one of which I offer here.

“We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.”

What an interesting thought to keep in mind as we begin our day, our journey, or the next phase of our journey.

Till next time…
