We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.

Richness of being

This moment has a beauty all its own. Look carefully and lovingly, and the real value of this moment is yours.

Instead of thinking ahead to what might or might not come next, pay attention to the richness of what is now. Instead of re-fighting past battles in your mind, open yourself to the treasure that is in front of you.

A miracle is unfolding right before your eyes. In the big picture and in the smallest of details, this very moment holds everything you could possibly need or desire.

This moment does not care how old you are, how much money you have, or what your hair looks like. Its treasures and possibilities are yours to experience no matter what.

Everything is as it is right now, and there is an immeasurable sense of peace in letting it be. Freely give your love and joy and meaning to this moment and travel along in the growing richness of being.

Think of how truly fortunate you are to be here and now. Live that good fortune with all that you are.

— Ralph Marston
