“You do not attract what you want.
You attract what you are.”

Wayne Dyer


Today I spent way too much time online. In the end, neither news nor gossip really mattered, because they did not speak to me. They did not touch my heart nor my soul.

Until I read the above quote of the day. That hit home.

I think, I end here. No need to dilute the truth.

  1. The quote is really great, thank you for sharing. It goes right into my little book for gems. 🙂 And you are right, no need to dilute the truth.:-)
    Have a wonderful Sunday,

  2. Love the quote and Dina is right – no need to dilute it.

    Beware of the time online. While I know the internet is fairly recent for you, it can get addictive. I’m trying to get back into reading real books, but it’s hard work when the font is so small (for me, anyway).

    Interesting photo. When/where is it taken? One of yours?

    (BTW I’m enjoying ‘Beyond the Sky and the Earth’, but have only read 30 pages so far. I love Jamie’s style of writing and the way her enthusiasm is mixed with a little self-doubt).

    • How is your reading of Jamie’s Bhutan experience going? Still in love with it?

      The photo was taken in Cologne, Germany on a rainy day in front of the cathedral. Yes, it’s mine…

      • I finished Jamie’s story in 2-3 days and loved it. In one way, similar to the one I suggested to you. I’ve really got back into reading recently. Not easy with my distance glasses perched on the end of my nose (to double up as reading glasses).
        Actually, I read an amazing book in one afternoon yesterday and thought of you. First time in about 15 years I managed to speed read (again). I couldn’t put this spine chilling escape story down. “We Die Alone” by David Howarth. I think it took about 4 -5 hrs to read. It’s an astonishing and true story of a Norwegian survivor of a betrayal during WW11. Crippled and snow blind, he is saved and then helped by villagers in northern Norway who carried/sledged him to safety over the mountains. He is then met by some Lapps who helped in the next stage into Sweden. At one stage, before the villagers from the other side of the mountain found him, buried in a snow cave, and gangrene setting in, he is forced to amputate all his frostbitten toes (except one) with a knife (and bottle of brandy). He was left in a ditch in the snow and buried in a snow storm (until villagers on the other side of the glacier/mountains could get through). Gripping story in the style of Shackleton’s survival trek after the Endurance was crushed by sea ice.
        Perhaps also similar to Rawicz’s classic “The Long Walk”.
        “We Die Alone” has to be one of the most unforgettable stories of endurance and the power of the human spirit.
        I’m always amazed by stories of survival against all odds. What makes one person survive and another die? Always fascinating stuff. And for some weird reason, I’m always drawn to the snow bound landscape in the far north (or Alaska). As an Australian city dweller, you’d think I’d be drawn to the sea and surf of the beach.
