Where life is at the moment

If you assume somewhere else is better, then you deprive yourself of enjoying and benefitting from where you are. If you yearn for a different time, then you steal from yourself the time you’re currently going through.

It’s great to have dreams, goals, plans for where you want to go, what you want to experience. Work toward those aspirations, while also fully inhabiting and treasuring the life you have right now.

When someone is speaking to you, listen, really listen, with all your awareness. Avoid becoming absorbed in what you’re going to say in reply, or wondering when you can check your social media feed.

When you do anything, do it with everything you have. If you’re always thinking of other times, places, people and issues, you’re only living a fraction of your life.

Right here, right now is where you find peace, joy, love, wonder, healing, connection, and so much more. Don’t render yourself absent from the value of what is.

This is where life is at the moment, and there is so much richness to be lived. Be fully present for it all.

— Ralph Marston
