Did you ever have the feeling you were being watched!?

Many thanks to Facebook friend Robert Saltzman for sharing these lines from one of  Carlos Castaneda’s books together with the photograph, below (the tarot cards were my idea).

The thing to do when you are impatient is to turn to your left and ask advice from your death. An immense amount of pettiness is dropped if your death makes a gesture to you, or if you catch a glimpse of it, or if you just have the feeling that your companion is there watching you.

Death is a wise adviser that we have… One has to ask death’s advice and drop the cursed pettiness that belongs to men that live their lives as if death will never tap them!

If you do not think of your death, all your life will be just personal chaos!

~ don Juan / Carlos Castaneda
