Just be

There is much you can know through silence. There is much you can learn by quieting your thoughts for a while.

There’s no need to attempt to stop those thoughts from coming. Simply choose not to hold on to them, and soon they will recede from you on their own.

Make the choice to disconnect yourself for a time from your judgments and analyses. Allow yourself to simply be.

Take in the beauty of life without feeling the need to do anything about it. Know fully the extraordinary experience of being alive, aware, and accepting of all the goodness that is there to fill you.

Put a little distance between yourself and the confusion. dilemmas and anxieties that so often insist on grabbing your attention. Give yourself the opportunity to remember who you truly are.

Spend some time enjoying the quiet and profound beauty of being alive. It will fill you with a powerful energy that can add value to all you do.

— Ralph Marston
