Miracle that is your life

Do you really need to do, say, possess, defend all the things you think you need to? Are there useless, even destructive, parts of your life so familiar you’re afraid to let them go?

Invest some time in a space quiet enough to hear your soul whisper. Step away from the frenzy and remind yourself who you are.

Break free of endless insistent deadlines imposed by digital algorithm. Understand that the data is your servant, not your master.

Rejoice and be amazed at the diverse and beautiful lives of other people. But don’t let their words, their attitudes, their follies diminish your own glorious, original spirit.

Often times the urgent matters are not so urgent, and can wait. Sometimes it is good to turn off your phone, to be out of touch with the world and in touch with the miracle that is your life.

Give yourself rich and sustained experience in life itself. Care deeply, feel intensely, thankful for every precious moment that you can.

— Ralph Marston
