The Teachings of Don Juan. Carlos Castaneda.

Have recently begun reading this (after finding A Separate Reality in a Cowichan Bay used book store for $1 and refusing to dive too deep without the first book in my possession) and am already just blown away. I think it’s so important for everyone living this modern lifestyle we’re forced into to consider that the way we experience the world isn’t the be-all and end-all. Refreshing to read non-fiction accounts of firsthand experiences with another way of living.
You must always keep in mind that a path is only a path. Each path is only one of a million paths. If you feel that you must now follow it, you need not stay with it under any circumstances. Any path is only a path. There is no affront to yourself or others in dropping a path if that is what your heart tells you to do. But your decision to keep on a path or to leave it must be free of fear and ambition. I caution you: look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself and yourself alone this one question. Does this path have a heart? All paths are the same. They lead nowhere. They are paths going through the brush or into the brush or under the brush of the Universe. The only question is: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then it is a good path. If it doesn’t, then it is of no use. Carlos Castaneda, Anthropologist / Author (1925 - 1998). From The Tao of Photography. (via crashinglybeautiful)

Telling [children] that sex is ‘only between mommies and daddies’ is a lie that leads to confused, hormone-charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is ‘only something that happens when two people love each other very much’ is a lie that causes hormone-charged teenagers to confuse ‘love’ with ‘lust,’ or ‘obsession.’ It leads to leaps of logic like, ‘If I have sex with this person, we must be in love.’ Or worse: ‘If I love this person, I have to have sex with him or her.’
