Great potential

Right now you face a great challenge. It is also a profound opportunity.

You must choose, in this moment, from an endless menu of possibilities, what to do. Though it may seem trivial, of little consequence, what you choose will change your life, will change the whole world, forever.

How do you narrow the possibilities, how can you know you’re making the best choice? Choose with love for your own potential, love for your family and community, love for beauty, for truth, for a positive and beneficial future.

It is not an easy choice, and once you make it you must make another, and another. Yet with those continuing choices, made with love and with respect for their power, you can reach higher than you could possibly now imagine.

Life is dangerous, complicated, frustrating, all too often arbitrary and unreasonable. Yet right now, with even the smallest positive, purposeful choice, you can transcend all that, pushing back the darkness, creating new and hopeful light.

Make the choice now to embrace your great potential, to give your love and effort to the best that can be. Take up the challenge, answer the call of this moment, and live the great life you are capable of living.

— Ralph Marston
