Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have.

Raise up all of life

Do you wish to invest your life in anger, or would you prefer to invest it in love? Would you like to spend your time and energy creating enemies, or would you rather be building and strengthening friendships?

Do you really need all those flashy, useless things that serve only to somehow make you feel superior to others? Is there really anything to be gained by being haughty and rude?

Every moment of life can be a unique, wondrous and deeply inspiring experience. Why would you ever consider wasting even a tiny bit of your precious time on petty bickering or one-upmanship?

Let go of the silly need to prove anything and you’ll free yourself to accomplish so very much. The only way to raise yourself up is to raise up others, to raise up your world, to raise up all of life.

Joy comes to you when you give it. Happiness is yours when you live it.

Everything you need, you are already capable of being. Smile from the heart and fulfill the destiny that is yours in this beautiful moment.

— Ralph Marston
