While reading through my readings on "Tools", I got to thinking about the subject matter and what tools I use in my everyday life.
I typically arise early of a morning anyway due to the fact that I get up that early to go to work anyway. On top of that I am in total control of my own life and allow no one to ever make decisions for me at anytime. I know what my pathway is and negotiate the obstacles along the path.
I am a warrior of my own making, and I practise my art constantly on a daily basis and let nothing deter me from that course, I have chosen to follow. I am my own authority, and I allow no one to be an authority over me. They do not know my inner workings of my mind, nor do they live my life for me or pay my bills either.
So my tools, to know myself, what I want, and where I am going, has already been set into motion. My vision is totally clear as to where I see my beginning and my ending and the path beyond.
Once we enter onto our pathways, those pathways never really end, provided we do not wish them to end, and they can go on for an infinite amount of time.
Our pathways are our lifetimes. Our lifetimes can continue for forever. Lifetimes only end because we wish them to end. Once we give up on ourselves, then we have given up on our visions, our conceptions, and our lives as we know them. Our passions for our visions, the conception of our picture puzzle lives, and our happiness depends on our desire to continue to pursue what we have designed for ourselves to follow.
