Today's Inspirational Quote:

"Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a
wonderful stroke of luck."

I've got one along the same lines: What you want is not necessarily what you need and what you need is hardly ever what you want. Kind of like getting socks at Christmas.

On a more serious note a gnostic verse struck me today and I wanted to pass it along.

Gospel of Truth
"Until the moment when they who are passing through all these things... awaken, they see nothing because the dreams were nothing. It is thus that they who cast ignorance from them like sleep do not consider it to be anything, nor regard its properties to be something real, but they renounce them like a dream in the night and they consider the knowledge of the father to be the dawn. It is thus that each has acted, as if asleep, during the time of ignorance, and thus a person comes to understand, as if awakening. And happy is the one who comes to himself and awakens. Indeed, blessings on one who has opened the eyes of the blind."

Blessings on your journey toward peace and knowledge,
