A more beautiful world

You’re connected to other people, places and things in ways you don’t even realize. Everything you do has influence that goes far beyond you, and that eventually comes back to you.

You cannot successfully cheat others, because eventually with such attempts you end up cheating yourself. What you can do, though, is continually inject your own unique value and goodness into life.

When you do, it grows in ways you cannot possibly imagine. It grows, and spreads, and lifts your whole world.

With every little positive action, you can make a difference. Because whatever you do is multiplied throughout the whole of life.

You don’t need to undertake some grand and glorious project to make the world a better place. The very best way to make the world a better place is to make yourself a more joyful, purposeful, loving, creative and effective you.

The way you live, in each and every moment, matters very much. Live well, with goodness, integrity and love, and you’ll find yourself living in a more beautiful world.

— Ralph Marston
