Connected

You are alive in this moment. And you are connected to all of life.

You cannot take undue advantage of others without also hurting yourself in some way. You cannot help others without also lifting up your own life.

The connection is strong and impossible to break. When you give your best to life each day, you experience the best that life has to offer.

When you think and act respectfully, you are respected. When you offer real, unconditional love, you are loved.

When making your choices in each moment about what to say, what to do, what to value, what to discard and what to work for, remember this. You are connected to it all.

Value, appreciate, honor and make the most of that connection. What is good for all of life is very good for you.

— Ralph Marston
