Now is Ready

Now is ready

No one you know currently has any time other than now. Every person, everything that exists, is now.

So what are you going to do with it all, right now? How will you make the most of the abundance and the possibilities that whirl around you, right now?

You’ve been in similar situations before, all your life as a matter of fact. You’ve gained new richness from every moment you’ve been through and you’re in the process of doing so again, right now.

You can’t be sure what changes will happen later, yet you’re able to see how the world currently is. Now you can make good use of that clarity.

Skills are now, opportunities are now, and here you are, able to transform intention into reality. The possibilities are too consequential to ignore.

Now is ready for what can be done with it. The next move is up to you.

Everyday Goodness

Everyday goodness

Going through your normal day to day activities, you’ll encounter plenty of opportunities for giving a little boost to the experience of life for yourself and others. Make the most of those opportunities.

Such ordinary instances of goodness might seem trivial. Yet they have a much larger positive impact than you might imagine.

The big, impressive acts of benevolence and attainment receive plenty of attention, but that’s because they are so few and far between. Everyday goodness, on the other hand, reaches people often, when and where they live, in ways that are wholly relatable.

A smile and a kind comment might only affect one single person, yet for that person, it can improve their whole outlook. That positivity could very well spread to others.

Make the offering of small goodness into such a habit that you don’t even notice it. You can be sure, however, that many people will notice.

Such everyday goodness costs you nothing while creating real value in people’s lives, including yours. Make a little goodness every time you can, and somebody’s sure to benefit.

Miracle of it All

Miracle of it all

Listen as waves roll again and again onto the shore. Watch as the sun gently sinks below the horizon.

Invest the whole of your awareness in the moment you’re in, the place where you are. Notice how completely the spectacular permeates the ordinary.

Gaze long enough in the same direction, and everything you see is beauty upon beauty. Give sufficient discernment to the situation, and its great value and potential become self evident.

Relax your concerns. Face the possibilities.

Let yourself be so consumed with gratitude that gratitude is not even close to enough. Then act upon your most sincere and loving instinct to expand upon the miracle of it all.

Shiny, dusty, old and new, simple, complex, soft and hard, everything joins in the magnificent spectacle. And here you are to know it, share it, carry it forward.
