A Great Chasm

As you go the way of life you will see a great chasm
It’s not as wide as you think.

Native American Proverb
Into the Abyss

I read Into the Abyss this past summer and was blown away.  If you’d like to know what the book is about, feel free to open the preceding link.  It will bring you to Scranton Page Turner, one of my other blogs I write. Creating abundance doing what I love has been an amazing experience.  I get to read for a living.  Who else can say that?  Many people obviously.  However, I’ve learned since being in this worldview I’ve been experiencing for sometime now, that as Law of Attraction suggests, our thoughts do indeed create reality.  Because I CHOOSE to see my career in a certain light, because I CHOOSE to see I get to read for a living that’s what becomes my reality.

I find inspiration for Wisdom and Life everywhere as you can clearly see from this above quote.  As with photography, when I’m constantly seeing with my photographer’s eye, everything quote, every phrase I come across becomes fodder, becomes as my friend, Jason Marchi likes to say becomes grist for the mill.


The above passage can be used in almost every aspect of life.
Don’t be afraid.


Life is full of challenges, full of chasms.  You can’t move forward if you always choose the easy path.  You won’t live life fully unless you take some risk, unless you jump occasionally.  You’ll stagnate if you constantly run from that chasm.  There will be no success.  Life without risk is not the life I want.  No one should want that life!


It’s not as wide as you think.
The chasm is NEVER as wide, the challenge you THINK you have is NEVER as challenging as you make it out to be.  After you’ve faced it down, after you’ve jumped, once on the other side, tell me this isn’t true.  Every time you face a challenge and jump, the less likely you’ll shrink from the next one that appears.  As with muscle memory, the more you do something, the stronger you become.


Take that risk!
You may surprise yourself and find that you can indeed fly.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.



Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;


We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
