2011: Year of the Rabbit
January 1, 2011 Leave a comment
Are you expecting more from 2011?
I’ll continue to work at learning to welcome and grow from all that comes even if unexpected but…
I’m hoping for peace; both the inner and outer kind, realizing that it may take many a struggle within and between all of us to achieve it let alone sustain it.
I’m hoping for increased physical and economical well-being for all; those who have nothing, we who have much and the handful with the most… but realize that to achieve this we will need to stretch our thinking beyond our current comfort levels and redefine acquired concepts that no longer serve us as a species.
I’m hoping to continue to dream and believe that there is a purpose greater than our ability to fully perceive it, which continually unites and focuses our daily lives… even if this purpose stems from within each one of us.
I’m hoping we’ll get better at recognizing and cherishing joyous moments and becoming more tolerant of just as memorable painful passages… for there is “much” to learn from this duality.
I’m hoping we all may continue to exchange love; physically, emotionally and in all of its wonderful manifestations… for without it, all else means little.
I’m hoping that all of us may strive to hope less and action more from this point onward…
