A belief is not merely an idea the mind possesses; it is an idea that possesses the mind.

Hope expressed through you

You cannot solve all the world’s problems. Neither can anyone else.

Yet you can make a positive difference each day in your own life, and in the lives that your life touches. And so can everyone else.

There is plenty of hope in life, and no shortage of opportunities for real progress and flourishing. If you have trouble seeing that hope, you are not looking in the right place for it.

Hope is not confined to any one person, or system, or institution, or idea. Hope is far too widespread to ever be fully comprehended, yet it has a tenacious ability to be realized.

Do what is good for life as you know it, as you see it, in the place where you live it. Know that hope is expressed through how you live, and comes forth in what you do.

Don’t waste energy wishing for a magic solution to all the problems. Instead, exercise the real magic, the real hope that comes from working to make life good every chance you get.
