The message in this day

What is today telling you? Instead of feeling that you must fight against the events and developments of this day, decide to carefully listen.

Imagine that there’s a message in each circumstance that comes your way. Proceed as if you’re receiving valuable information that can make a real difference in your life and in your world.

Instead of becoming completely consumed by what’s happening, take a moment to consider why. Then go one step further and look at ways you can make use of the new knowledge that is coming your way.

The challenges that arrive, the joys you experience, the disappointments, the discoveries, and the seemingly random happenings all add up to something. Let go of the need to instantly jump to shallow conclusions about each little thing, and seek to know the whole picture.

Find out for yourself what happens when you make the assumption that everything occurs for a reason, and that those reasons are good. Take a step back from what seems to be turmoil, observe with your heart, and you’ll begin to see order.

Choose to see the message that today is bringing. And you’ll find in it real treasure.

— Ralph Marston
