“You must fashion your life one action at a time, and if each attains its own end as far as it can, be satisfied with that.” — Marcus Aurelius
Life is made up of moments. Just as light and shadow continually move across a landscape, so the texture of any given moment is a living, breathing thing, continually flowing and creating a new vision before your eyes. Engage with it. Take the energy that you might otherwise expend worrying about the past or the future, and instead apply that energy toward engaging fully in the present moment. If you do this, not only will the quality of your immediate experience rise to its highest potential, but a cumulative sense of self-awareness, perspective and overall contentedness will also gradually accrue. You have the opportunity to be a co-creator in your life. The quality of attention that you invest in each moment will determine the quality of positive mindful influence that you can infuse into its content and flow.
