It is always easier to believe than to deny. Our minds are naturally affirmative.

Serene respite

Take a deep breath, and calm your thoughts. Rise above the noise and confusion of the day, to a place that is peaceful and serene.

Let go, for a moment, of the need to judge, to analyze, to criticize and to strategize. Let go, for a moment, and experience how beautiful it is to just be.

All is well in this moment. It’s perfectly fine to simply enjoy it for a while.

Your problems, your dramas, your possessions are all very small compared to who you are. Take just a little while to remember that.

Touch, for a moment, the beauty and boundless energy that is your life. Consider what a miracle it truly is.

Give yourself a refreshing respite of peace, of calm serenity. Then take it with you in all you do.

— Ralph Marston
