One's first step in wisdom is to question everything - and one's last is to come to terms with everything.

Be free

Be free, and savor every little grain of existence that dances before your eyes. Beauty and joy are not what someone says they are. You know them because of the way they fulfill you. Your own doubt is your opponent’s greatest strength. Carry yourself beyond it and see the sparkling universe which whirls with possibility around you.

Free yourself from the burden of your own anxiety. Whatever is, is already. Whatever you will be, is yours to create right now. Live each moment with all you have, not just with whatever has survived the worry.

This is the best day that has ever been, though some may attempt to convince you otherwise. Free yourself from their addictions of limitation. Life is yours to live. Though it is gritty, it is real. Though sadness comes, it is possible only because you care so much. Let go and live the joyful experience that is yours.

— Ralph Marston
