Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important in some respect, whether he chooses to be so or not.

Look beyond

Look beyond your immediate concerns, beyond the view you’re accustomed to, beyond your familiar perspective. A whole universe exists out there, and it’s filled with unique people, thoughts, experiences.

Step away from your assumptions. Refuse to allow your perceptions to be channeled into pre-defined boxes by you or anyone else.

You are capable of discovering and experiencing what no one has even imagined. That’s a whole lot more interesting, compelling, and inspiring than just repeating what everyone else is repeating.

Don’t cheat yourself out of the creative power that lives and grows within your every moment. Take each opportunity to have what cannot be bought, to know what cannot be researched, to live what cannot be pre-programmed.

That restlessness you so often feel is telling you something you need to hear. Your spirit longs to live, not to be assembled, cataloged, and manipulated.

Challenge yourself to keep your perspective fresh, original, and fulfilling. Continue to find out for yourself how life can always be so much more than it already is.

— Ralph Marston
