Every day is a good day

“Every day is a good day” is a simple statement, but few know its real meaning.

The “good day” does not refer to a nice day compared to a bad one.

It means the absolute, not the relative day.

Today is the absolute day, the only day in the eternity of time.

Today is never repeated. Every day is fresh and new, just as one’s life is new each day.

Every day is good, but the good is not of one’s own making.

It is good in the original or absolute sense—rain or shine, war or peace, sickness or health.

The past is only a reference; the future is the only hope. Today is real.
