Some thoughts on this New Year.
Beginnings always have an expectation. Where do we go from here? What happens next? In 2019 there is hope that tough times for those that have them will end. The teen decade of the new century is at its end, and we are still searching for global sanity. There are still too many regional wars infecting the planet, and it's people as we struggle with the belief that security is having more. There is always hope that the litany of Pandora troubles in our politics will transcend into the common good, but let us not forget that hope without action is arrogance. We each have to work at finding harmony in chaos. Harmony is there; we can feel it when we give from empathy and not reward; when we resolve not to be discouraged, not to speak in anger, not to blame, and not to judge without the truth of looking within first. Maybe this is the year that unconditional love and appreciation will guide the hearts and wills of humankind. Maybe!
