Authentic experience

What if you owned the most beautiful home in town but were unable to ever live in it? What if you had a magnificent yacht but were never able to go aboard?

What if you had dozens of fascinating friends but were never able to talk with them? What if you visited a magnificent destination but never left your hotel room?

What you really want is not what you want to have, to be, to do. What you want are the experiences you’ll gain from those things.

What you want is experience, and no one can give it to you, no one can do it for you. The experience at the heart of every desire is up to you.

Your fulfillment is not dependent on any particular possession, activity, or relationship. You can find many alternate pathways to whatever experiences you seek.

Whatever your goal, what’s driving that goal is the desire for authentic experience. Keep that in mind, and your options as well as your outcomes will be greatly improved.

— Ralph Marston
