Most of the media talk we've encountered speaks of New Year Resolutions. New Year's Resolutions are the same Old thing: focus upon traditional ideas of undesirable behaviors - such as smoking - that one is determined to Quit; or undesirable things - such as weight - that must be Lost.
Alice, wise beyond her ears, last night suggested that I consider making Now Year Resoulutions. (There she goes throwing the extra "u" in there again, like she does in the word Absoulute.) Here's some of what she said...
The idea of Now Year Resoulutions also serves as reminder that This Here Now is it! The Good Thing! This Here Now moment is to be regarded with Gratitude, as a reflection of the Joy of Being.
So consider Now Year Resoulutions.
Instead of that same old pledge to "lose weight", Express your intent to Experience the Opportunity of Physical Enlightenment!!
Instead of your umpteenth attempt to "quit smoking", Express your intent to Experience Fresh Air!
Every cloud has a silver lining, and every perceived problem has an Opportunity.
Happy Now Year, always!!!
