Be at peace

Quiet your mind. You don’t have to think through every moment before you live it.

Certainly it is good to think and to live intentionally. It is also good to sink into peaceful awareness.

Just be. Stand and simply experience what is in front of you, not what you worry about or imagine.

Refresh your memory of what it feels like to live a while with no agenda other than to be. Amaze yourself at the sheer beauty of life in an utterly ordinary place and time.

Allow yourself to fully experience what is here, what is now, and what is real. Yes, imagination is powerful, and action is essential, but not all the time.

Let your thoughts, your feelings and your whole self be at peace. Then take from that peace the strength to move forward with a renewed sense of purpose and vigor.

— Ralph Marston
