True silence is the rest of the mind. It is to the spirit what sleep is to the body - nourishment and refreshment.

What does it take?

When you’re feeling down and would like to feel better, what does it take? It takes nothing more than your choice.

When there is something you know you must do and yet you can’t bring yourself to do it, what does it take to get you moving? It takes nothing more than your decision to make it happen.

When your world is dull and gray, and happiness seems like an unreachable, distant dream, what does it take to make you happy? It takes nothing more than understanding that the happiness you experience comes not to you, but from you.

What does it take to live the life of your dreams? It takes nothing more than your moment-by-moment commitment to do so.

What does it take to bring achievement and fulfillment into your life? It takes nothing more than letting go of the limitations you have imposed on yourself.

When life is here and now, ready to be lived in all its richness and value, what else does it take? It takes you, and your choice to let the best of who you are come fully to life.

— Ralph Marston
