Rise above the need

Instead of focusing so intently on what you can get, consider what you can let go. Lighten your load and become more nimble, peaceful and powerful.

Some of the things you so desperately think you need, you do not need at all. As your needs diminish, your freedom and richness grow.

There’s nothing you must have in order to be. Devote some of your life to simply being, and know the liberation that comes from letting go of yourself.

Ambition, intention and disciplined effort will bring you much in this world. Always remember, though, that there is more to life than the success the world confers.

When you act out of need you will struggle from a position of weakness. Rise above the need, and you are free to achieve without limitation.

Remember that fulfillment is not about getting all that you need. Fulfillment is knowing the freedom to be all that you are.

— Ralph Marston
