Welcome to season 2…, Mindful Quotes, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. A series of my own fresh and original inspirational quotes…. Of course, we can all benefit from being inspired…, and many of us have our favorite quote. 

Some of you may be searching for yours…. That one quote that inspires you to be a better, healthier, and happier You…. Of course, Success as well…, embodies these attributes. 

There is a quote here for almost everyone. Listen for yours.

Hello. I am William Garcia, Philosopher, author of the book titled, Now O’ Clock. Being Mindful, it Always is, and…, your host.

Being a Mindfulness practitioner…, and before I open with the quote of this day, I invite you to join me in a mindfulness affirmation… Ready…. First…, take a deep breath with me…. That felt good, right? Now…, repeat after me…, It is Now O’ Clock…. I am… I am here … I am here now… I am open to be inspired.  

Now…, let’s take another deep breath.

Of course…, you can affirm your mindfulness and do the breathing exercise on your own or with someone else, and I strongly recommend you do. Make it at least a twice daily routine. But if you also want to do it with me…, let’s do it.

 I believe this mindfulness affirmation will help tune your sense of presence…, your mindful sense of presence in the only occasion that matters in your life…Now.

It is Now O’ Clock…, time for the quote of this day.

 As you know, Time is the main theme throughout what I write and talk about. I also talk a lot about presence; a co-theme, so to speak. But most of the time, we talk about Time in terms of what we do in our daily lives, and for good reasons. This brings me to the quote of this day.

A quote titled: GOOD

There is never a bad Time, to “Be” good, or to “Do” good. There is never a bad Time for something good to happen to you, someone you love, or to the world. So, what are you waiting for, unquote?

I get the sense that so many are not mindful to be good, do good or expect good. 

Wait a minute now, hold on. I am not saying that you are not being good, doing good, or not expecting good things to happen. 

What I am saying, is that many of us are not always intentional about these. We are almost on auto pilot about them, and I mean this in a good way. 

But better it would be, to be intentional about being good and doing good. This would add so much more “goodness” to ourselves, others, and the world…, don’t you think? I believe intent gives the act of good or kindness an extra special meaning. 

As a metaphor, it would be like being charged with intent to commit a Good, found guilty of committing that Good and being sentenced to do Good for life. Would you have been able to plead guilty in this case? I want to believe you would, and the world thanks you. 

Still, it continues to be my hope that there would be more, many, many more of us, serving such a Life sentence. What a good world this would be.

 After all, good is good regardless, and there is no such thing as too much good, or too many good people, right? On the contrary, it is those in life where more is always better.

How about this, could you imagine someone asking you how you are, and you saying, “I’m good, too good in fact, want some, I have too much”? 

I can’t. It would be like saying. “I am so happy I can use a little sadness in my life right now”. But that would be crazy talk, right? Of course, it would.

Again, there is no such thing as too much of a good thing; that thing being goodness itself.

So, don’t wait. Be mindful and intent in doing something else good for yourself, someone else, or for the world. 

Don’t worry. You, me, and everyone else, will run out of life before we run out of good things to do, good acts to commit.

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for…. That quote that ignites your passion and gears you up for achievement…, or…, it may be the quote that…, as you journey through life…, illuminates your path…, brings you peace…, love…, and happiness. Share what you find here with someone else. It may be a quote…, that for them…, may set them…, or keep them on a path to a better life.
