Truth, and goodness, and beauty are but different faces of the same all.

Cleansing

Empty yourself of everything you care about, every dream, every worry, every concern, every ambition, every purpose, every disappointment, every desire. Gently let it all go.

Then put back in only the things that have real meaning. And taste the sweet, glorious freedom of being able to bring those hallowed purposes fully to life.

Are you so intensely concerned with chasing success that you’ve made that success impossible? Let it go, and then you can truly know it.

Do you ache so fervently for love that you drive it away? Let it go, and it will fill you.

Cleanse your spirit of all the many layers of need to, have to, want to, and can’t do without. Clear out some space to truly live.

Underneath all those empty artifacts you’ve been striving to hold on to, there is freedom and there is power. Cleanse yourself of the need to need, and free yourself to soar.

— Ralph Marston
