The simplest questions are the most profound.

Where were you born?
Where is your home?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?

Think about these once in awhile, and watch your answers change.
– Richard Bach, Illusions


Awhile back I posted one of my favorite Richard Bach quotes and it provoked a great reaction from a few fans of his work, so I thought I”d share a few more over the next month. I especially like this quote (and really everything else from his book, Illusions) because it”s a reminder to take the time to check yourself and to break away from this unconscious state in which we frequently find ourselves. We go to work, go to school, pay our rent/mortgages, etc., and engage in a kind of life highway hypnosis. Often, along the way, we begin to forget about our mission in life, our goals, and the very things most important to us. It”s so important to consider these things and to realize our part in this global play in which we are starring. All of this is just an illusion.
