Every act

Whatever you do, do it with passion, with love, with full attention and awareness. Put all you have into even the smallest of acts.

The richness of life is in the doing. Fulfillment comes not from getting, taking, having or keeping, but from being and becoming.

In every action there is the opportunity for greatness. The more of yourself you put into all that you do, the more successful you will be.

This moment is not a practice or preparation. Now is when real life happens.

Give your energy, your attention, your thoughts and your love to what you are doing with now. Put yourself fully into what you do, and whatever you do will be of much value.

There is no task too small or too large to ignore. Life is truly rich when you can see that every moment, every act has its own special greatness.

— Ralph Marston
