Stop for a moment and calm your thoughts.
Let go of your anxieties and look around you.
What do you see?
You see a world filled with beauty.
You see a life filled with possibilities.
You see dreams being born.
Being nurtured and being fulfilled.
Yes, there are challenges.
Yes, there is sorrow.
Yes, there is violence and hatred.
But more than these there is love.
There is goodness, there is joy.
The future is uncertain.
And that means there is no limit as to how
beautiful and joyful you can make it.
Yet what you have is right now.
And right now is completely as it should be.
It is your time to live.
Think of what a precious thing your life is
and how truly blessed you are to be experiencing it.
Right now.
Right now, any anxiety you have about the future
is only an illusion.
Let it go.
Let it go as the beauty and perfection
of right now wash over you.
The best thing you can do for the future
is to live with everything you have in the present.
Right now, you are in the position to create real,
lasting positive value for the world in which you live.
How do you do that?
By following your heart.
By being theyou that is really you.
You may have wondered away from yourself.
Now is the time to come home,
You know in your heart that you are here for a reason.
The pain that you feel is that purpose, that reason for living,
As it constantly aches to break free.
When it does, You’ll be more alive than
you could have imagined.
Breathe in the beauty around you,
The beauty and richness if being alive.
It is your gift.
It is your fortune.
It is your blessing.
And it is yours, to live, to experience, to fulfill.
Right Now.
