The Art of Being.
The art of being is the assumption that you possess, this very minute, those qualities of spirit and attitudes of mind that make for radiant living.
It is a philosophy of being today, instead of becoming in a tomorrow that never comes.
It is recognizing that courage, joy, serenity, faith, hope and love are immediately available now, and proceeding to open yourself so these qualities can be expressed through you in everyday living.
It is following the maxim of Shakespeare: “Assume a virtue though you have it not” …knowing that the dynamic power of habit can build it into your character.
~ Wilferd A. Peterson, The Art of Living (1961)
