Let go and open up

If you cling too tightly to what you have, you drive away the possibilities for anything new. When you barricade your gates to keep others out, you end up creating a prison for yourself.

Life is best when it is freely flowing. When the flow is stopped or impeded, stagnation soon sets in. Ironically, the way to get the most from what you have is to be able to let it go. For if you wrap yourself too tightly around what you have, it becomes of little use.

A magnificent treasure serves no purpose when it is forever locked away in a vault. But when it is allowed to circulate freely, it can spawn more and greater treasure, over and over again.

Let go and open up. The best that you have is far too valuable to keep it hidden inside.

— Ralph Marston
