A moment of serenity


Take a moment to pause and remember who you are. Take a moment to reflect on the things that have real and lasting meaning in your life.


In a world where there is so much change from instant to instant, keep yourself ever connected to those values that endure. Refresh your spirit often with a time of quiet serenity.


Find refuge from the noise and turmoil, and you'll be able to hear the voice of purpose and meaning, calling from within. There are many valuable things you know without being told, and it can be energizing to contemplate them.


Beyond the shallow concerns that must scream for attention are life's real treasures. Those treasures come clearly into focus when you step back a little bit and take an objective look.


Pay attention to the nagging feeling that there must be more to life than all the rush and confusion. There most certainly is.


Take the time to make time stand still. And take in the experience of being.


-- Ralph Marston
