True silence is the rest of the mind. It is to the spirit what sleep is to the body - nourishment and refreshment.

Power of desire

The difference between possible and impossible is primarily a function of desire. The desires that you nourish, maintain, support and follow will largely determine the reality of your life.

When your strongest desire is to build a successful business or career, and when you can maintain that desire for as long as it takes to make it a reality, then it will happen. When your strongest desire is to be comfortable and take the easy way out in every situation, that will come to pass as well, though not much else will.

Your desires are yours to follow or to abandon as you please. No one can force you to want something. No one can force you to give up your desire. The power of your desires is under your control.

Consider the desires that govern your behavior from moment to moment. Where are they pushing you? They represent a powerful force that will indeed determine the quality of your life. Keep that in mind and you decide which desires to follow and fulfill. Harness your desires to make your life the best it can possibly be.

— Ralph Marston
