A quote by Neale Donald Walsch on “living rightly”

You will benefit enormously if you simply strive to be a good person. Strive to live rightly. This will not always be easy. It will require real work, real dedication, real commitment to the Journey of Your Soul. Yet in the end, I trust in God that it will be so very worth it, for…
