Highest level

Throw the worthless junk out of your mind. Now, put that mind to work, along with your body, your spirit, the whole of your self.

Stop allowing the meaningless nonsense to dominate your awareness. Disconnect from it, and do all the good, useful things you are able to do.

There’s no shortage of foolishness in this world but it doesn’t have to slow you down. Leave it all alone and focus your existence on positive purpose, on love, compassion, and excellence.

Engage yourself fully in life and connect richly with all who live it. You can do so without being dragged down into the pettiness and absurdity.

Remind yourself how precious your own life is, and how precious every other life is. Let your respect and desire for the highest possibilities drive your every thought, word, and action.

With utmost kindness and understanding, refuse to accept any less than the best from yourself and from others. Live at your highest level, and bring the whole world along with you.

— Ralph Marston
