We win half the battle when we make up our minds to take the world as we find it, including the thorns.

Feel each moment

Think, but don’t let your thoughts about the situation distance you from the situation. Experience where you are, who you’re with, what you’re doing without overanalyzing it into triviality.

Your life in this universe is not just some abstract concept. It is a real, living, unique adventure, so treat it as such.

Release the temptation to outthink the moment, and find richness in living the moment. Take in that richness not by mentally outlining its benefits, but by participating in its substance.

Sunshine warms your back and a rain-cooled breeze cools your face. Treasure life as you live it because it feels so good.

Thinking is a powerful, useful pursuit. Yet there is more to life than just thinking your way through.

Feel each moment and experience its rich sensations. Be where you are in person as well as in thought.

— Ralph Marston
