2021…This Year is Done…2022…We All Become New…

Here we stand reflecting on 2021…after today, a year all done. What will you leave behind…and what will you bring forward in the New Year?

How and what did you contribute to the year we are leaving behind, in a matter of hours? With the restrictions of the pandemic, politics, and altered nature causing horrific tolls on our country and the world, how did you make your presence felt in the last twelve months? Were you a beast… a burden? Were you a saint or a sinner? Were you naughty or nice? Were you an instigator or a Savior? Were you an innovator or a diehard? Can you look back on 2021 and say that you were the best of yourself? Or can you be honest enough to say you weren’t?

Each year becomes more riddled with obstacles and trials that test our mettle and our humanity…

Each year…we are called into the role of shepherd…and each year…we fall short.

Each year…we are given the realization of our connections to one another…and our planet…and our ignorance prevails…

For each one of us Time is finite…It is a reality that we face every day…If anything has given us that sobering realization…let’s start with our introduction last year to the coronavirus…and it’s continuing reign.

What will you bring forward in the New Year?

What about a new you?

A new you with the realization that you cannot rely upon someone you give your vote to…to represent your best interests…understand that there is not one with a heart of gold…or who can walk on water…and promises in politics…are always made to be broken…

This new you will also have the realization that life on our planet has had it’s longevity cut in half because the powers that be…have chosen to honor and support the almighty exchange…money…instead of the continuity of life on all levels…

The new you will realize that change is in your hands…it is your power to change every circumstance which hinders or suppresses opportunities to rise into the stratosphere of humanity at it’s best and finest.

The new you will realize that we can arrest and control the coronavirus from its constant mutations…by everyone practicing the protocols that would protect every man, woman and child…because we have the compassion and common sense to understand that we must stand together to conquer that which seeks to divide us…permanently.

No one’s rights are being challenged, taken away or restricted by sense and sensibilities…that tell us that the right thing to do is to ensure continuity of life by doing whatever is available to stop the loss of another million lives…The new you holds that power in the palm of your hands…The new you is and always has been the instrument of Change…

You…me…we are the catalyst of creating the best life and conditions for our human family….

2022 is upon us…

Close the door on 2021…bring forward the new you in 2022…

Thanks for the lessons 2021…So long…Farewell…Goodbye….

Whatever the New Year brings…

It begins with…You.

Become New…in 2022….

The Two Most Prized Gifts This Christmas Day…

The two most prized gifts this Christmas Day are…the gift of Love…and the gift of Life…

The Universe has given humanity the task of extending life through love…by understanding and utilizing the meaning of “unconditional.”

The true meaning of Christmas which began to shift in the mid-19th century is “To give up one’s very self—to think of others…how to bring the greatest happiness to others.”

This Christmas we were tasked with choosing to adhere to the standing protocol involving social distancing and mask wearing to curb and slow down the spread of a raging plague classified as Covid-19, which came into being near the beginning of the year.  Many ignored protocol…and the virus gathered uncontrollable momentum and has now mutated to a strain that is faster in its ability to infect, increasing its reach into groups, such as people under the age of 30 and young children, nearly tripling its rate of mortality overall.

We have the ability to give life…by caring about the lives of others…by practicing social precautions known to arrest the spread of this deadly disease.  That includes traveling…

Can we care about others more than we care about ourselves?  The sacrifice that brought forth Christmas Day was the birth of a savior…who would one day sacrifice his life…to save humanity from the ravages of sin…whereby granting everlasting life by giving up his own self…by thinking of others.

The excuses made to ignore the simplest of short-term remedies in order to get back to normalcy are weak and selfish and without regard to others and their right to life.

There will be mothers and fathers…grandmothers and grandfathers…sisters and brothers…children and grandchildren…aunts and uncles…cousins and friends…who will lose their lives, because someone and many… felt they could ignore protocols, and live life as if it were normal…in the Age of Covid-19.

So many asymptomatic individuals are passing the virus onto others… Think of the thousands who could be spared and saved from this avenue of transmission if everyone wore a mask?

If doctors and nurses and other healthcare personnel, who are willing to put your life first…before their lives… and many have given up their lives in treating and caring for those stricken with this horrific disease…can’t we also love life enough to give the gift of life to another?

Out of love, we can give the gift of life through love…we can give the gift of life through helping those who are less fortunate in making it through this devastating trial of life altering circumstances…we must remember that any one of us can be touched by the tragedy of the Coronavirus…any one of us can be touched by the threat of eviction…any one of us has and can lose our livelihoods…but in the midst of it all…we must remember our humanity.  We have…and always will be…our brother and sister’s keeper…no matter what race…culture…creed…or any form of diversity…our purpose is to realize the connectivity we share with every living creature…the breath of life does not discriminate…it is the life of life… Un-conditionality must bring us to this realization…Love…must bring us to this realization….

This Christmas Day…out of darkness…light can come forth…through each and every one of us…The power of humanity’s longevity…is in your hands…and mine.

No act is too small…given out of love…it becomes a great miracle to one in need…

You are the first day of someone’s life…

Practice social distancing…

Wear a mask…

Please restrict your travel for just a little longer…

Donate a can of food to your local food bank…

Give a dollar or two to a charity that you know will help someone who has lost their home…or will help them save it.

You are chosen to save a life…by giving life…

Your importance isn’t measured by what you have or how much you can give…

You are important because you are the continuity of life…through your gift of love…through your gift of sharing the breath of life…

You are the giver of Christmas miracles…

The importance of Christmas…is you.

This Christmas Day, the two most prized gifts are the gift of Love…and the gift of Life…and you possess them both…

You have the free-will to exercise the giving…

Will you?

The Universe is watching….

Godspeed you the courage to honor your gifts…

Merry Christmas…2020.

Countdown to Christmas…

Countdown to Christmas…

In five days we will face our Christmas Present in a nation left divided by political strife…

Devastated by a virus mutating and spreading with the aid of those insisting upon ignoring mask protocol, social distancing and traveling this holiday season…

There is an available vaccine that will not be available to stop a surge now growing rapidly with each passing day…

Millions are still waiting for a stimulus package which will not arrive in time to ease the strain of the economic fallout from the raging corona virus, wherein many face evictions, a sparse Christmas table in food and family members and friends fallen victim to the death and physical debilitation of Covid-19…

While this may seem like a dark Christmas, there is still hope and the promise of joy and miracles…

We have been shown that the light and love of compassion still emanate brightly in the hearts and kind acts of our fellow human beings…

Many private citizens have stepped forward with contributions in many ranges and variables to aid those in need…

You may well be one of those beacons giving and bringing comfort and joy.

The spirit of Christmas is not just demonstrated in the approaching date of December 25th… The spirit of Christmas is year round, day to day…

Humanity is in great need of Love, Compassion, Giving, Healing…and reinforcing the virtues which define the “better” in those of us who wish to honor the better of ourselves…

We must step away from the “luxury” love has been made out to be…Love is who we are…it is our rite of passage in “becoming” better versions of ourselves.  It is the great stepping stone in our evolution of spirit…a great gift which can create miracles and change us and those we touch…in the twinkling of an eye…

In five days, we can do a world of good in supporting and practicing the miracle of Christmas by bringing forth our powers to manifest miracles…utilizing our spirits to embrace Goodwill…Giving…Loving…all those who cross our paths…in these days leading up to Christmas…and beyond.

This Countdown to Christmas is the beginning of your legacy…your miracles of change occur in the lives you touch…with the power of love…be it a smile…a contribution…or any heartfelt act of kindness…any gesture of compassion…given in love….

This Christmas season, the Savior has deemed you the savior…

One act of kindness…can change a life…and many lives…forever.

How many lives can you touch in five days?

Perform some Christmas magic….

He Has Risen…Have You?

Born again…Resurrected…He Has Risen…Have You?

So much love…faith…belief…sacrifice and patience has been unconditionally given to secure humanity’s salvation…can’t we find it within ourselves to be worthy of such an incredible gift?  Can we rise?  Can we make our better…blessed?

This great celebration of life eternal becomes all the more precious if we could only comprehend an iota of the love that manifested a Savior for humanity in the first place! An iota of love…that has the power to create…and destroy…a universe.  An iota!

Imagine being told by the Messiah that you could do greater works than He?!

Everyday you rise from your bed…you have that opportunity…to live up to your gift of salvation…and do greater works than He… Start with the realization that everything begins and ends with love…

It doesn’t take too much effort to fall “in love” with an object or a person…

For humans, it takes less effort to be “in love” with something or someone…than to actually love something or someone. 

To love something or someone wholly…requires no thought in doing it…there is no rhyme or reason…no conditions or restrictions…you just love…

To be “in love” requires conditions…A smile…an attraction…a gesture…how you feel…how it makes you feel…how someone makes you feel… a piece of furniture that makes your living room pop! In love….Conditional.

Celebrate the love that put us in salvation mode…Celebrate the opportunities you have to love…unconditionally…Celebrate the greatest love of all…by loving others beyond yourself…family and friends…celebrate the gift of life in everything that you do…and say…and think…and express…humbly celebrate you…and the great capacity you have for love…to love…and to give it…

He Has Risen…and He has shown us how to Rise…Can you…will you…Rise?

Happy Easter!

Happy Resurrection Day!

Happy Salvation Day!

Now Rise….
