Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right, or better.

Beautiful to behold

Even the smallest light cuts a path through the deepest darkness. Let the light of your own goodness fully shine, and experience the positive impact it imparts.

Those who can only tear down and destroy grow weaker and more vulnerable with every action. Those who sincerely respect and value life have infinitely more possibilities open to them.

Those things gained through deception, repression, fear and intimidation are never worth having. They begin to crumble even before they are realized.

Those things gained through creative, positive, loving and respectful pursuits, on the other hand, quickly spread and multiply. That’s because within each act of genuine goodness are fertile seeds of even greater goodness.

Each day life presents many and varied challenges. Every one of those challenges is an opportunity to confirm and intensify the truth and goodness with which life is filled.

Though it is often difficult, choose in each word, each thought, each action, to shine your positive light on the world. For it is in that choice that you will find a world and a life that is rich, and full, and truly beautiful to behold.

— Ralph Marston
