As the year approaches its closing, we are reminded of all that happened in 2016 personally, in our community, in our country and in the world. We may be disconcerted and concerned, and maybe feel that there is nothing we can do to make positive changes come about. I, for one, do not believe that. I believe that the light that originates in the heart center can make all the difference in the world.
There is much more good than there is evil. There are many more good times than bad times. There is much more full heartedness, than heartache. We must be overwhelmed by the good and not the bad. We must not succumb to that which tries every cell in our bodies. Our hearts, minds and bodies go through a lot in our lifetimes – just think about it – illnesses, grief, imbalance – yet we are still here. Our bodies are resilient, our minds are durable, our hearts are strong.
From that perspective, we can imagine our feet grounded to the earth – unshakeable – and a warm bright light from within the center of our beings. That is what makes each of us unique. Take time during the passing from 2016 to 2017 to feel what it is that makes you, you. What is your individual gift? What is your individual light? It could be as simple as making someone feel good or as grand as having the knowledge and skill to save a life. One is not better than the other. It is all goodness coming from the light within.
The only way to move forward in this world is to foster the goodness within ourselves and those around us. Recognize the goodness in someone else and call attention to it. Let the judgments fall by the wayside, let the past be the past. We make our lives to a certain extent, and then part of life just unfolds. It is what we do with that part that makes us stand out as human beings. The inner light can take front center and direct how we react. There is no mystery, it is our consciousness and our ability to feel deeply. Take some time to ponder these thoughts and rest your body, mind and heart. Just rest, for a little while. Be the light that changes the world.
May the New Year bring you peace, joy and love. May you be happy. May you be free. May you be grateful for all you have and do not have. May you let go of things that do not serve you. May you have inner peace.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
