Desire goodness

The quality of your desires affects the quality of your life. Fortunately, your desires are not all arbitrarily imposed on you.

Your desires have great influence on your life from moment to moment, decade after decade. And you have significant influence over which desires you grant prominence to.

You are going to be captivated by and, in a sense, enslaved by some particular things. You can be intentional and strategic about what those things are.

All desires have the power to reach into every part of your being. Yet not all desires are created equal.

Some desires will compel your commitment to valuable, life-enhancing achievements. Other desires have the power to ruin your life and the lives of those around you.

Respect the power of desire and express your respect by choosing desires that benefit your life and your world. Live with the desire for true goodness, and goodness will come from your thoughts, your actions, your life.

— Ralph Marston
