Where there is joy there is creation. Where there is no joy there is no creation: know the nature of joy.

A moment at a time

You can accomplish great things, yet you must always do it one moment at a time. Today is filled with a wealth of those moments.

Great value is created steadily and diligently, one moment at a time. Live with respect and appreciation for each small moment, and that value will be yours.

If you fill a moment with resentment, nothing of value will come of it. If you hurry through the moment, anxious about what is next, you’ll leave behind the opportunity you could have had to make a difference.

You can easily stay focused, you can easily persist, and you can easily stay positive for just one small moment. And when that beautiful, effective moment is over, you’ll be ready and willing to do it all again.

In the confines of a single moment, what possible place could there be for worry or despair? After all, it’s just a moment, it’s yours to use, and while you have it you can take a few positive steps forward.

Pour the fullness of your love and positive purpose into each little moment. By calmly and positively living a moment at a time, you’ll bring your true greatness to life.

— Ralph Marston
