[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Are you going to answer the call?

You can answer the call or you can refuse the call? And the call begins
with the question, what are you put on this earth for? Elizabeth Gilbert

People construct their lives around two responses: thinking and doing. They
think about things, and they do things; think about things and do things;
think about things and do things.

And what they do depends on what they think. It's what people believe that
creates their behavior

Many people would rather die for their beliefs--or kill others--than change
them. It doesn't matter whether the beliefs themselves are functional.

It doesn't matter whether they are making people happy and producing a
better life.

Some people would rather be unhappy doing what they believe, than happy
doing something else.

Do you want to be right? or do you want to be happy?

Peace!

I'm off to New York City for the next few days, taking a bite off the apple
on the journey, I'm scheduled to appear at three events, really excited
about showing up!!! First bite: Medgar Evers College City University of New York Second bite: La Casa Azul Bookstore

Stay tuned for more biting........
