Depth of spirit

There are some things you can know and yet never understand. Love is one of those, and beauty is another. There are things you know to be true, even though you could not explain why. And nothing could ever convince you otherwise.

The richness of your life, of your being, extends far beyond anything your mind can imagine or rationally comprehend. It’s a truth you know on a very deep level, beyond words, beyond reason.

Though you could never fully explain what makes life so very much worth living, that doesn’t change the fact that it is. Yes, on the surface there are storms and tempests, yet down deep at the core you know there waits a peaceful, undeniable joy.

Though your body, mind and rational self may frequently bump up against limits, your spirit can always soar ever higher. Let it do so, and the rest of you will surely follow.

Life is much more than what you can touch, or see or taste or even think. Live from the depth of your spirit and give life the best that you know.

— Ralph Marston
