DW: The Book

I've just read the most important book I've ever read, "A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose" by Eckhart Tolle.  A few pearls to chew on over bagels: 

“When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life. It means that fear is no longer a dominant factor in what you do and no longer prevents you from taking action to initiate change. The Roman philosopher Tacitus rightly observed that ‘desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise.' If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into increased aliveness, alertness, and creativity."

Uncertainty is the zip code I've been living in for the last 6 years and it has produced a great deal of creativity (among other things).

"Worry pretends to be necessary, when all it does is contribute to turmoil. Worry can never be an agent of change."

I'll write more later, but was inspired to share this after reading Rodney's post--bravo Rodney!!!
