Never work just for money or for power. They won't save your soul or help you sleep at night.

Greater purpose

If you wish, you can immerse yourself fully in this moment. Or if you choose, you can focus your awareness beyond the moment and transcend this moment entirely.

At any and every point in time the choice is yours. With this choice you shape your life, your experience, and the world around you.

You decide what gets in and what is left out. You decide which notions, stimuli, experiences are amplified, enshrined in memory, acted upon, and which are attenuated until they are forgotten.

This great power is yours. With this power, you manifest your intentions into reality.

What drives all this, what makes it work without breaking down into utter chaos, is your clear sense of purpose. And that comes from being completely honest with yourself about yourself.

Live to love all that you love, to support all you value, to care for what matters most. You have great power over your life, so be sure to direct it with even greater purpose.

— Ralph Marston
