What’s now

Before you rush away from this moment, take a look around and see its beauty. Instead of worrying about what’s next, see the immense value that’s already yours in what’s now.

Savor the time you’re in and the place where you are. Appreciate all that you have instead of being obsessed with how to get more.

You are already wealthy beyond all measure. Open your eyes to now, open your heart to purpose, and experience in rich detail the miracle that is your life.

There’s nothing to be gained by racing furiously away from this moment in search of more. Instead, put your energy into accepting all that is and you’ll find it is more than enough.

Put your focus, care, love, attention, interest, curiosity, purpose and passion into where you are right now. This is your time and place to live, to achieve, to feel, to learn and to experience.

Everything you are, you are right now. Be here and live the richness.

— Ralph Marston
