Thinking and Knowing

My friend, Joy Riley (, sent this message to me.   She received it from her friend, Cypriana McCray.   It had such a profound effect on me that I want to share it here.


Thinking is powerful. Knowing is even more so.

Thinking is a function of your mind. Knowing encompasses all you are.

What you think can change from moment to moment. What you know is always a part of you.

What you know goes beyond all doubt. What you know has the clear, powerful presence of truth.

Use your outstanding mind to think. Use your magnificent life to know.

Knowing comes from experience, guided by purpose, and from feeling the wonder of all existence. Know that you can do it, that you can be it, that you can experience it, and you will.

— Ralph Marston
