It is a new year for some of us. I have always gone along with the Jewish tradition of having my new year begin in September. Am I Jewish? Nope. It just feels right. Before I start a new year I always like to revisit the old one. Ya know, some years are terrific and you feel you are on the right path. Other years? You need a map of the map to find the map and you just happen to be mapless.
If Spiritual Triage has been a necessity to get through your days for an extended period of time? You are having one of those mapless years. It happens to the best and the worst of us but the merciless blizzard of pain and anxiety does have an expiration date. It really does.
Here’s the thing.
Under no circumstances do you check out no matter how bad it gets. Show up at the door of perception with your suitcase in hand no matter what. Come armed for bear with a heart full of honey and as much love you can muster. Show up! Isolation is a killer. It only complicates matters. Sadness and a bad attitude can dig a grave of gravity that can take several years to rise above if you allow it. And no one has time for that. Do they?
Chances are you are in this funk because you have not been able to abandon an old way of being, of living, of hurting. Most likely this “way” has prevented you from being able to connect with other humans and live your best life. Kept you from your heart’s desire. So of course you are at six’s and seven’s and feeling lost.
In order to claim your heart’s desire?
You will most likely have to give something up. Something that has been a source of comfort or pleasure for a far too long.
Figure it out.
Then figure out which fork you are supposed to use to gobble up your fair share of Joy and Luck in the new year.
Happy New Year!!
We send… Love, Light and Oceans of Bliss for the Highest Good of All.
And so it is!
