It begins today…Year of the Rabbit…Another chance…

Twenty-two days into 2023, and another New Year beginning to hopefully get it on track…it is predicted that 2023 will be a year of hope…

Hope is sorely needed, especially looking back on the last twenty-one days of 2023.

It is a universal hope that humankind will take more steps forward instead of continuously and swiftly opting to take humongous steps backward…into the primitive recesses of human evolution…

So many opportunities to forge ahead…to change…to progress…to become the best of ourselves!

Lunar New Year celebrations traditionally last for 16 days…from Lunar New Year’s Eve to the Lantern Festival.

More than 2 billion of the world’s population celebrate Lunar New Year…Countries that have public holidays during this time include China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, South Korea, Malaysia, North Korea, Singapore and Brunei.

The rabbit is a very strong symbol for peace…

We can all work to bring about peace in our lives…and in the world around us…and beyond.

Not many have the opportunity of second chances…yet…here we are…a second chance at a new beginning in the Lunar New Year of the Rabbit…

Take a deep breath…give thanks…and give peace a chance by reaching out and becoming that crucial element that ignites the torchlight of peace…in touching and changing the lives that cross your path each day.

Peace has another beginning…with you.

On The Eve of 2023…

Here we are…the last day of 2022…On the eve of 2023…

We cannot leave behind another year that has changed so many lives on every level of living…and dying.

We must carry the memories and the lessons learned into the New Year…using them to focus on building a better bridge for humanity to expand upon the best that each and everyone of us has to give in contribution to realizing positive milestones…

We must absorb “the real of change”…

We must undertake the realities that face us if we continue to roll around in ignorance and denial…

We must understand that being able to witness the coming of another year…is not a right…but a privilege…because as we know…there are no guarantees to living…or to life.

We wake…we walk…we breathe by the grace of something far larger and greater than any human entity…and lest we forget…we are indeed reminded.

We must remember to walk with humility…Talk with kindness…and relate with love…

Choose and cultivate Peace…

We must strive to elevate our spirits…recognize connectivity…honor diversity…and embrace every experience and adventure that unfolds in our lives…because these all contribute to the sum total of who we are…and how we fit into the ever changing tapestry of the world and beyond…how the best of us gives birth to another star in the cosmos…as well as touching lives we have yet to meet…

The changing of the year is not a mundane and trivial happening in the scheme of things great and small…it is a change that gives humankind another opportunity to prolong its existence upon this place we call Earth and home…

On the eve of 2023…don’t squander the gifts you’ve been given to continue to make a way for elevating the best of who you are…and the best of others…

Pay attention to what is going on around you…embrace the gift of change…forge your path with footprints to follow into 2023 and beyond…

You…can make 2023…a Happy New Year…

A toast to your footprint!!!

Happy beginnings…

The Celebration Continues…Kwanzaa!

Reflect and Meditate…On a Selfless Christmas.

Today is Christmas. It will be a day of joy and celebration for some…and just another day for others…

However the day unfolds…take some time to reflect and meditate…and take yourself out of the equation to reflect and meditate on others.

While it is always good to be thankful and grateful for what you have…and what you receive…step outside of your box and reflect and meditate on those who are not as fortunate due to War…Poverty…Homelessness…Mental Disabilities…Sickness…Physical Disabilities, and other human frailties which may or may not come to mind…

These human conditions will not take away from your joy of Christmas if you become a part of someone else’s joy. Remember, it isn’t always a material gesture that heals…a smile…a kind word…an act of random kindness, everyday…will elevate a spirit to the highest level of Heaven! Christmas isn’t just for a day…it is an energy that is endless and timeless!

The difference someone makes in your life…is the difference you make in others’ lives…

When you step out of Ego…and into Spirit…you know who you are…what your purpose is…and how you can leave a positive footprint in the world…for others to step into…

You are the Joy…

You are the Light…

You are the Giver…

You elevate the goodness in the world…

You…make the choices to do so…or not…

You…bring Christmas…

You are…Christmas…to more people than you know…

Reflect and Meditate on that…

Being “selfless” is an unconscious habit…

Refine it and allow it to shine brightly…

Mesmerize…like the lights on a Christmas tree…

Reflect and Meditate…

Let the joy of your Christmas…touch the lives of countless…

Let the joy of you…energize you…

Merry, Merry, Merry…Christmas!!!

To All…Goodnight…

To All…Shine…Bright.

May Peace always…be with you….

This Night Before Christmas…Commit To Peace…Pledge…To Love…

Christmas Day… over 2000 years ago, bestowed upon humankind a miracle…in the form of a man who would eventually give his life for the salvation of Humanity…

While it is your choice to believe or not believe…Salvation is yours.

This night before Christmas… Commit to Peace…Pledge… to Love…

We choose the lives we live…we can make conscious and unconscious choices to live the best possible lives that contribute to the well-being of those within and without our immediate circles…families…communities…

We can gift many with kindness and compassion…understanding and patience…with goodness and joy…

These gifts are lasting and yield endless bounty…paving the way to Peace…reinforcing the power of Love…

Receive these gifts in the Spirit of Christmas…and in the Light of Salvation…Understand the miracle of Christmas…

Gift these treasures…and behold the miracles which spring forth and transform humankind…

This night before Christmas…Commit to Peace…Pledge…to Love…

Your light…and how you use it…nurtures and sustains…the true meaning…and the miracle…of Christmas….

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing….

Restoring Christmas Magic…With The Heart of a Child.

Here we are…three days before Christmas… Can you feel the Magic?

Isn’t it something how Christmas eventually melts the hardest of hearts?

Remember when you were a child and the anticipation of what was to come…wishes and desires materializing in the wonder of the Season? Nothing was impossible in the heart of a child…our childish innocence was priceless! And magic…because we believed!

Can we recall that belief and restore Christmas magic…with the heart of a child?

Can we believe long enough and strong enough to change the chaos going on around us…in our lives…in the country…in the world?

Restoring Christmas magic with the heart and determination of a child…can bring about Christmas miracles…if you believe

Belief moves mountains…materializes hope…dreams and desires.

Believe in Peace…

Believe in Harmony…

Believe in Love…

Believe in You…

Believe in Humanity…

Believe in giving outside of yourself…

Believe in the goodness of spirit that keeps the world turning…and the universe from imploding…

Believe in Hope…especially when you can be the bearer of hope for another…

Believe in Good Will and be the example in practicing it…always.

Believe that there is more light in the world…by increasing yours…and becoming the better part of yourself…until it becomes

the entirety of your being…no one is a lost cause…unless they give up on themselves…

Don’t ever give up…give in…unleash the child-like innocence in your heart…let the magic of the Season show you again…

Restoring Christmas Magic…

Restoring Belief…

Restoring…You…

Christmas is almost here…

Unleash the magic…

Believe!!!!

The Final Month of 2022…

Here we are. December 1, 2022…The Final Month of 2022…

Taking a look back at the last eleven months, how will we spend the final month of the year?

It is a month we will never have again…please spend it wisely…Make it count…Make it meaningful…

Truly make it a month of giving and living…with extra doses of Love…Goodwill…and selflessness when it comes to others…within and without your circle of living…and when it comes to you…remember that you are a work in progress…with the ability to change and uplift…yourself…with compassion…patience…and forgiveness…as you would offer and give to those outside of yourself.

Humanity is a continuous work in progress on a scale that ranges far and wide.

The holidays we celebrate in December are holidays of humility across our various cultures…with one element in common: Goodwill…Love is the greatest…however, that is a 24/7 exercise to eventual mastery…if the heart…mind…body and spirit are endless and willing in the pursuit and attainment thereof…on an unconditional level of practice and fulfillment.

If humanity would only commit to Love…and Goodwill toward everyone across our planet…The Final Month of 2022 would be vastly different than the eleven we have lived…experienced…and witnessed…where changes that would elevate humanity have once again been ignored and explained away…clearing paths that only worsen the human experience and condition of countless…who only wish to live and embrace a better quality of life.

Make December a standout month for human improvement and compassion.

There can never be harmonious living between good intentions and evil doing…

Only the best of who you are can change the world for a better today…tomorrow…future…

The Final Month of 2022…is your gift…to gift the world with love and light…

Thirty-one days of better…

Better you…Better world…Got it? Get it?

Get going!!!
