Where there is joy there is creation. Where there is no joy there is no creation: know the nature of joy.

Change

Things change. People change. Rules change. The world changes. Desires change. Conditions change. Opinions change. Change is everywhere, all the time. What was certain yesterday, is different today, and will be something else tomorrow.

Think of the people you’ve known for a while. Do you really know them the way they are now, or do you still assume they’re basically the same people they were years ago? Consider how many things in your life have changed in the last six months -- what you’ve learned, how you’ve grown. Remember, everyone else changes too. That prospect who had no interest last month has changed since then.

Consider the implications this fast changing world. What assumptions are you making, that might no longer be valid? Embrace change and it will work for you. Resist change and the world will pass you by.

— Ralph Marston
