Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.

Time to live well

Invest in the happiness of others and you won’t have to struggle to find your own happiness. Don’t hold too tightly to your possessions, your plans, your opinions, your feelings.

Find joy in letting go of what has been. Discover new richness in allowing the goodness of what can be.

Remind yourself often to appreciate and explore the miraculous nature of your existence, of all existence. Let the beauty that is manifest illuminate and inspire you toward the far greater beauty that is possible.

Indulge yourself in kindness toward all those who can benefit from it, including you. Allow the healing power of love to find expression in your actions.

Carry peaceful confidence wherever you go and leave rowdy arrogance behind. Make a positive difference when you can, and graciously accept when you can’t.

This is your time to live well. Do what you know is your best.

— Ralph Marston
