True silence is the rest of the mind. It is to the spirit what sleep is to the body - nourishment and refreshment.

This is the day

This is the day everything you’ve learned can be put to positive, productive use. This is the day when you can call upon the courage, the strength and the abilities with which you’re blessed, and with them achieve great things.

This is the day in which you can truly make things happen. Think for a moment about the power of that ability.

You’re not limited to painful regrets and empty wishes that this day could have been different, as you are with past days. You’re not limited to hoping for what will happen, as you are with future days. Today is the day when you can make things happen, and that is rare and precious indeed. Of all the days in your life, this one that you’re living right now gives you the power to truly make a difference.

You can think, you can focus, you can make decisions, take action, offer your love and understanding, build, create, and move forward. You can do it all this very day.

All that you’ve ever dreamed of, or hoped for, whatever you sincerely desire, is here today in the form of very real and attainable possibilities. This is the day to get up, get going and transform those possibilities into reality.

— Ralph Marston
