The beauty of now

Are you aware of what’s happening right now? Or do your recollections of the past and speculations about the future create a barrier between you and the present moment?

Are you fully living and experiencing this life that you have? Or do you put so much energy into analyzing every detail and worrying about every move that there’s no time left to simply and gloriously be?

Are you striving so earnestly to get ahead that all the effort is putting you more and more behind? Is your life so totally defined by what you need to do that you’ve lost sight of who you are?

There is so much you can let go of, without really losing a thing. It is when you stop merely trying that you can truly be.

The life for which you have always longed is as close as your very next choice. You are completely equipped and prepared to make that choice.

This moment is filled with magnificent possibilities, and this moment is when you can bring the best of them to life. Let go of those burdens you really don’t need, and open yourself to the beauty of now.

— Ralph Marston
