Richness of who you are

You don’t have to know every answer. You don’t have to witness every spectacle.

You have no need to acquire every possession. There is negligible value in experiencing every possible sensation.

Joy is found not in quantity but in quality. Fulfillment comes as a result of discernment rather than unbounded accumulation.

You have to allow many things to pass you by. That gives you the time, the space, the focus to invest yourself in what you care most about.

Yes, you are always missing out on something. That’s precisely what enables you to attend so well to all that truly matters.

Let go of any anxiety or jealousy surrounding what you might be missing. Instead of trying in vain to grab all you can, live the richness of who you are.

— Ralph Marston
