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's  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  may have about the future  is only an illusion.

Let it go. Let it fade away  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.

You are in a 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 the you that is really you.

You may have wandered away from yourself.

Now is the time to come home.

You know in your heart that  you're here for a reason.

The pain 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 ever could have  imagined.

Breathe in the beauty around you, the beauty and richness of  being alive.

It is your gift. It is your fortune.

It is your blessing. And it is yours, to live, to  experience, to fulfill.
