A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing.

Power in peace

To be peaceful, be thankful for all that is. Peace comes when there is no fighting, and being thankful eliminates what you would fight against.

In a state of peace, you can focus all of your energy on being effective and creative. When you are at peace, you have great power to put toward the service of your highest purpose.

Peace enables you to fully accept and make use of the limitless abundance that surrounds you. Peace saves you from all the wasted time and effort of resentment, judgment, worry and doubt.

What has arrived in your world is already here, and you are here to fully experience it. See if you can be genuinely and unreservedly thankful, for that thankfulness draws you into the powerful state of peacefulness.

Yes, some of what comes your way is uncomfortable, inconvenient and even painful. Be thankful nonetheless, and ease the burden of your burdens.

Be thankful, and truly at peace, with what is. And you put yourself in control of what can be.

— Ralph Marston
