The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it but what they become by it.

Live it now

All of existence has arrived for you to experience now. Your entire life has unfolded so you can enjoy it now.

This is not practice for later. Now is when the experience of living becomes yours.

There is no waiting for the perfect moment, for the ideal condition. There is no putting it off until this arrives or that departs.

Life, with its endless variety of richness, is now. Life, with lethal risk and sublime joy wholly intertwined, exists entirely in this moment.

Celebrate your unbounded good fortune at being, right now, in the same exact realm as everything that is. Put that glorious opportunity to use in the service of all you love and treasure.

Open yourself to the ups, the downs, the discoveries, difficulties, joys and wonders that extend out as far as you can imagine. Life is here, live it now.

— Ralph Marston
