We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others, by their acts.

The strength inside

Let love and joy and goodness get through to you. Let all the rest fall gently away.

Take whatever the world offers and direct it toward what matters. Be strong, inside, where strength makes all the difference.

You don’t have to be drawn into the negativity of the moment. You can choose to live at a higher level, not arrogantly but gratefully and lovingly.

You can choose purpose over pettiness any hour, every hour of the day. What gets inside and stays inside and grows, is up to you.

Imagine joy, and it is there. Imagine looking at life from a perspective of love, and you do.

You really can transform difficulty into achievement, anxiety into peace, conflict into cooperation. Decide to nurture and use the strength inside, and make it so.
