What if every single day of your life you had to walk by a series of doors and decide which ones you were going to open and which ones you would leave closed? You might try to open them all just to take a quick peek and then decide whether to cross the threshold or not. Or you might leave most of them closed as the risks implied in opening some of them might be too great. They might show you things you would prefer not to see, or they might show you incredible riches but so far in the distance, that you might feel you don't have the strength to traverse the area from the threshold to the end. Or again, they might open to a deep chasm, and you would have to take the next step as a leap of faith, knowing that beyond the chasm were even greater riches.
Flora Whittemore once wrote: The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live. The decisions you take on a daily basis about the people you will speak to, the interest you will show in a given matter, the initiative you will take about something, the truthfulness with which you examine your own life and your interaction with others, the willingness you show to look at your own ego and need to be right, the love and compassion you share with others: all these and many more are the doors you open and close every day.
Which doors are you opening and closing today?

From the Description of Rewiring the Soul on Amazon:
Ask anyone, whatever their circumstances, if their life is vibrant, fulfilling, harmonious and happy. An honest reply is likely to be 'no', because to answer a truthful 'yes' is no mean feat. Only to grow psychologically and emotionally is not enough. And only to grow spiritually is not enough either. All three dimensions need to be developed in order to realize your full potential. If you are willing to assume total responsibility for the self and to start what is an on-going journey, you will quickly begin to glimpse the first fruits of the ultimate goal: inner well-being, freedom, peace, harmony and joy. This book sets out the pathway to self-mastery and self-discovery and walking that pathway will be the most exciting adventure of your life.
