Playing Our Parts

“You can play any part –
be it a rich man or a poor man,
a beggar or a thief,

and are not willing to
give up your present state,
you will remain there,
looking at your desire
and not from it.
You can become
what you would like to be
in the twinkle of an eye
by the simple act of assumption.”
~ Neville Goddard
