It is well to remember that the entire universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others.

Go out and do

Life’s energy does not come from talking, wishing, speculating about life’s energy. Life gains its energy from action.

Get up, get active, go out and do. If your muscles do not ache at the end of the day, you have neglected many opportunities for richness.

Connect with the reality of hot and cold, of soft and hard, of distance, depth, and steepness. Challenge yourself to navigate through the rugged terrain of what is true and solid, nourishing and fulfilling.

You are capable of so much more than merely absorbing comfort and pleasant entertainment. Choose to be an active participant in the wonder of existence.

Feel your strength increasing as you negotiate the difficult trade-offs. Act to create rich experiences that add lasting value to your life.

Honor and fulfill the potential that’s been coming your way since before you were born. Go out and do all the good you can do in this real and beautiful world.

— Ralph Marston
