Some thoughts today on the upcoming new year.
Beginnings always have an expectation.
What happens next, where do we go from here.
There is an old saying that says we attract to us what we fear the most. If that's true, then it is time to acknowledge that within each of us is an immense creative energy that can find a way out of the fear, the sadness, the despair, the negative conditions for which we often blame others.
Perhaps it is time we see ourselves as creators. Not only the creator of things, but also of attitudes and personal conditions.
We often constrict our creative self by placing limits. We often inadvertently deny those in need by believing security is having more. Sometimes we delude those we say we love by only loving ourselves through them and not honoring their choice and sacred self.
Perhaps it is time to listen to the life force of our hearts, for it lets us hear the trees, the oceans, the plants and animals and even strangers when they speak to us.
That life force is unconditional love, which translates to respect, courtesy and kindness.
It has never been tried on a mass scale.
It seems to me we have nothing to lose.
