Okay. It’s happened. Our nation’s power has been transferred to a billionaire narcissist who says one thing, then says another, denies saying the first thing, and accuses the media of making up what he said in the first place. How sad! But life goes on… maybe not as smoothly as before, maybe not as peacefully as before, but it goes on. It is still within the power of each of us to make the world around us the best it can be. We can each do that. And we will survive.
#New Consciousness is knowing that when we say #I AM… we are speaking fact… and that anything we say after that to describe ourselves… male… female… black… white… yellow… red… rich… poor… Hindu… Christian… Muslim… Jew… Atheist… whatever… are just filters and adjectives through which we view and experience the world.
Human beings share something very important. Every one of us feels that we exist… that some very personal being we call ‘I’ is inside us, however we define that ‘I’, or what it looks like from the outside. And though the individual attributes surrounding each ‘I’ are different for each of us, the feeling of just being, the feeling of ‘I am’ is the same for all of us. (tbc)
I have just sent out emails to the founders of IDEO, a major design firm whom I would love to work with in getting New Consciousness out into the world. Let the marketing begin. Oh, and I purposely didn’t post the first days of the year just so I didn’t feel I’d have to do it daily for the rest of my life. Maybe some day I’ll feel that way… especially since going one day at a time really wasn’t that big a deal… but not now.
I did it. That’s it. Which also happens to be the third of my three rules of life. 1. Be happy. 2. Be kind. 3. That’s it. So take that 2016. You are finally over… although your residuals will be plaguing us for at least the next four years. A Happy New Year to everyone. May it bring us all peace and joy and love and oneness, the way it was originally intended to be.
Two days to go. And if the second rule of life is… Be Kind… then at least I have tried this year. I could always try harder, of course. Next year, I will. There, that’s a commitment.
Only three more days to go till the end of the year. If, indeed, as I always claim, the first of the three rules of life is “Be happy”, then it has been a very good year. I am truly blessed.
Saw some hospice patients today. It’s amazing how I act so differently with each one… wishing them all peace and no pain and suffering but acting differently with each, playing it by ear depending on who they are and how they are handling things. Ultimately, it’s not about me. It’s a good lesson to know.
It really is amazing how something that seemed so daunting at the beginning of the year is nothing special or difficult here at the end. I do wonder if I will commit to doing this again for another year or not. If I do, that probably means blogging every day for the rest of my life rather than just one year at a time. That might not be so hard other than committing to actually saying something of value, which I certainly didn’t do this year. Don’t rush me… I’m still thinking.
Amazing. As the year is coming to an end I feel it winding down rather than coming to a climax. I’ve basically done all I can to make things happen in 2016 and what did, did, and what didn’t, didn’t. Knowing that “I” am in charge rather than little ole me sort of gets rid of any guilt for what didn’t happen… provided, of course, that I gave it a shot and didn’t just sit on my butt waiting for the goodies to fall off the tree. So, basically, I’ll keep on with the game plan in 2017 and if the Red Sea parts, great. If not, glub, glub, glub.
