Rabbi Zelig Pliskin writes on the art of living in the here and now His Article [click to read] in Jewish World Review will inspire you to make the most of every day.

"Here is the way to achieve lives of joy, courage, love and serenity is to live in the moment, to see the wonders of the present, to feel gratitude for what is happening right this minute. Right now we're writing our life stories, and we can choose how the script will read." -- Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

Many of us have dealt with the depressed economy and underemployment -- even unemployment. It is a good thing to remember that the condition of our spirit does not depend directly upon the fulfillment of our physical well-being.
