How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

In the living

Somewhere ocean waves ease onto the shore just as they have for millions of years. Somewhere an owl takes flight as the last light of day fades from the western sky.

A child stares in wonder at the falling rain. A woman bakes bread as she has for decades.

Life is in the living. And there is always something good to live.

Simple moments, epic occasions, and the experiences in between are all made of the same substance. Rather than assigning a category to what’s going on, just live it for all the goodness it is.

Here and now is your occasion to be, to see, to know, to feel, to act. There is no limit on the good you can make from it.

Stop second-guessing what may or may not be, and live the full and accessible reality of what is. Beauty, joy, goodness and meaning are yours to experience, if you will.

— Ralph Marston
