" Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!"
Inspiration and true peace come from that still small voice only heard when we take the time to slow down and observe. As I have often become too wrapped up in the relentless pace of society and the growing demands placed upon my energy and time I’ve discovered how truly vital it is for me to make the time to be still and listen. It is in those quiet times I become free. It is in those moments I find some inspired wisdom and the strength to carry the weights and resposibilities I hold. Without it I become a miserable shadow of a former self like seeing someone else’s reflection staring back at you in a mirror. There is too much beauty still to be found in life to waste the time I have been given by being over-run by the lesser joys of living or the many anxieties which can overpower the daily schedule.
