2014: 365 spins of Earth’s axis as we revolve around the Sun, hurtling through space at break-neck speed to return to where we started. There will be laughter and joy, tears and fears, surprises and monotony.
I’ll tell you a secret…sometimes I am afraid of the future. In my younger days, it seems the past was biting my heels, and I couldn’t wait to move on… but now I’ve dealt with all of that pain, forgiving even the most unforgiving. The peace that dwells in my heart sometimes overflows with joyful tears and I want to stay right where I am now, happy and blessed. But time moves on quickly, and the dreadful angst returns.
More and more often, I have to keep up my courage, keep on believing… So it is with a mixture of confidence and compliance that I make these resolutions for 2014.
1) Hakuna Matata (it’s a problem-free philosophy)
2) Keep dreaming, looking for something I’ve never dreamed…
“Well! I’ve often seen a cat without a grin, ” thought Alice; “but a grin without a cat! It’s the most curious thing I ever saw in all my life!”
3) Take each moment, and live each moment, in Peace, in Love, right here, right now. Amen.
Happy New Year, friends! May all your dreams come true…
