Do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain.

Let now be good

Let now be good. Let now bring its unique fulfillment and richness.

Those days in the past that you remember as perfect had their problems and shortcomings. Those future times you imagine as ideal will not be flawless.

Be thankful for what has been, for all that will be. And experience each joy as its time arrives.

Now is everything you have. It is far from perfect, yet it is more than enough.

Do the good you can do, now when you can. Be the authentic person you are, now when it matters.

Let go of any longing for what might have been, or what was, or what could be, and just let now be good. Now is here for you, so be fully here for now.

— Ralph Marston
