Every challenge we face can be solved by a dream.

You are

The things you do are important to you. Yet they are not who you are.

The words you speak serve to express you. Even so, they are not who you are.

The circumstances of your life give you a context in which to operate. However, those circumstances do not define you.

The problems you have, the possibilities that are open to you, the challenges you face, the value you’ve created are all connected to you. Yet they are not who you are.

Your past tells the story of what you’ve been through, and your future gives you space in which to grow. Your past and the future are not you, though.

You are beyond your words, your actions, your circumstances, your challenges, your accomplishments, your past history and your future opportunities. So who exactly are you?

You are the person who can give it all meaning, and beauty, and love.

— Ralph Marston
