To do just the opposite is also a form of imitation.

What you long for

What you are longing for is already here. How could you know it so intimately if it was not a part of you even now?

What separates you from your dream? It is nothing more than your resistance to accepting it and living it.

What you long for is not to be found in some object or location or set of circumstances. It is within you.

Go ahead and let it out. Go ahead and let it be.

No amount of misfortune or disappointment can tarnish the values you hold most dearly. Step gracefully and confidently forward knowing that you and your dreams are always intact, no matter which way the world may go.

Live the joy that is in what you long for. It is real, it is here, and it is you.

— Ralph Marston
