Every man without passion has within him no principle of action, nor motive of act.

On the inside

There is a place, deep inside you, that is filled only with the things you’ve allowed to come in. Take a careful look, and see what that special place holds. For although nothing can get in unless you allow it, everything there will surely get out. The things you hold inside of you will eventually take hold in your outer self and the world in which you live.

One day, your innermost imaginings will become your outermost reality. So what are you imagining? Is your inner self full of fear, anger, doubt and resentment? Or do you fill your innermost thoughts with love, faith, confidence, gratitude and joy?

Whatever is on the inside will soon be on the outside, and will indeed define who you are. Make positive use of that control you have over your deepest, innermost self.

Fill the inside with goodness, with love, with the best you can imagine. For what you keep inside, is what you do become.
