Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life. Gregg Levoy. 1997. ISBN 0-517-7-569-9
Everyone needs a spiritual guide. My own wise friend is my dog. He has deep knowledge to impart. He makes friends easily and doesn’t hold a grudge. He enjoys simple pleasures and takes each day as it comes. Like a true Zen master, he eats when he’s hungry and sleeps when he’s tired. He’s not hung up about sex. Best of all, he befriends me with an unconditional love that human beings would do well to imitate.
With the pride of the artist, you must blow against the walls of every power that exists, the small trumpet of your defiance.
A less than belligerent commitment is a curse.
Joseph Chilton Pearce
Nothing so upsets the bishop as the rumor of a saint in his parish.
