Golden connection

Appreciating everything you have is good. But if that’s all you do, it can keep you stuck in the past.

Desiring what you don’t have is healthy and useful. But if that’s all you ever do, it traps your awareness in a future that’s fantasized but never realized.

This present moment is where you actually are. To be fully present, you must balance your desire for what can be with your appreciation for what has already come your way.

This present moment is when you can connect your appreciation with your desire. It is the place for your gratitude and your ambition to empower each other.

Every dream you have for the future is based on what you’ve already experienced in the past. By making purposeful use of what you have you will proceed along the path to whatever you wish to be.

Right now is when you can make that golden connection. Let your past and your future join together to produce the best life you can envision.

— Ralph Marston
