Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression.

Your inner self

Nothing will be of any use to you unless you have the capacity within yourself to know it and accept it. Peace, love, beauty, success and fulfillment have meaning to you only when they have meaning within you.

It is by knowing yourself that you can know all else. It is through nurturing love and goodness within you that you can experience love and goodness in the world around you.

To be at peace with the way things are, be at peace with the way you are. To be confident in the affairs of the world, nurture confidence within the stillness of your inner self.

The reality that matters is the reality that has meaning and resonance within you. What you see, what you experience, and what you live, all come from who you are.

If you feel that something is missing in your life, turn inward. Find and nurture it there.

Make a beautiful place for yourself within yourself. Then let that beauty flow out through all that is.

— Ralph Marston
