Today’s Quote:  May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions. ~Joey Adams

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live from my being and let all my agendas slip away.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: New Years resolutions are almost universally based on judgments, who we think we should be, what we should have and how we should behave.  They take a major force of will to uphold and so, when our will power falters they fail.  And nothing has changed.  Wouldn’t it be better to choose simply to be authentic in who we are?  We would do better choosing to live our lives in the moment; honouring and being transparent with our feelings and owning them without blame or projection.  If we did this we would soon discover that happiness is the only feeling even remotely interesting or worthy of our energy.  We would no longer have troubles, we would only have opportunities.

I choose to relax into my authentic self this year and return to this centre if ever I find myself forgetting.
