For every locked door one encounters, another opens all by itself.

  2. I put the mouse on your blog and clicked it with my eyes closed..and in my heart i made a little prayer that it will give me an insight into my personal issue.....let me say, this is the perfect insight for my situation...
    Now i wait for another door to start opening itself to me :)

  3. In the past, I have worked with all my might, putting my hands into things and trying to make the outcomes come out my way to get what I wanted. Then I found myself working with all my might to get rid of the thing I thought I wanted. Now I just let good things come to the waiter.

  4. Yes, the locked door can open the mind. Obstacles can induce expansion.

  5. It's a matter of re training yourself to perform a differnet job. Kick the habbit now , you can start right after reading this post. After a few days you wont believe it took you so long to do it.

  6. I think this is a good reminder that "is that all there is?" can almost always be answered with "no". I do think though, that as much as there might be many doors that open by themselves, it still takes a consciousness on our part to go through them. Or, to recognize which ones we need to close and walk away from.

  7. Yes it's my experience that usually when a door closes a window of opportunity presents itself.

  9. I've often found that, too. Not all paths are obvious. Others are so obvious you forget to look for the sideroads until the main path is blocked.

  10. So, if there's one for another one (locked door and open one), I'll start to appreciate as many blocked doors I'm going to encounter because of this promise of another opening by itself. Smart, Marty!

  11. well, for the general something happens when you try hard, but i think you make your opportunities but need a little of luck, opportunities must come too when you have something to give to change. I trust in this rule too, can be easy to say that you make all the job for yourself, you need the chance too. A hug. Mario.

  12. i guess, life is about choices - learn when we should take chances and when should work hard on creating opportunities by our own is one of the most important way to practice happiness.

  18. My granny always used to say:
    "When God closes the door, he always leaves the window on the latch"

  19. A very optimistic and still practical line of thinking, we should understand life's not out there to get us, encountering a disappointment we should try to understand what happened and know that there are always solutions to any problem. Many more alternatives and many more options.
