Thought for the Day

All the spiritual masters agree that if there is a secret to
happiness, it is simple—presence to the moment. The
more present we are to the now, the more grateful we
are for what is, the more we tap into joy. All we have
is the present. This moment, this pain, this joy, this
gratitude, this surrender. And the more moments we
slowly and gratefully turn over to God, the more
we tap into this joy.
