The Beginning Is Near
Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.
Since the beginning of time, people have worried about the end of the world. Every generation has had its share of gloomy times and every generation has believed its plight was the worst. Yet, we are still here, and somehow humanity keeps surviving and growing in consciousness.
Life on earth is always changing and it is always improving. As we approach the New Year, we should take stock of the last year. What did we set out to do this year? Have we been true to our goals? What gift and awakenings did we receive that we didn’t plan on? How have we been challenged, and have we found a way to turn our challenges into blessings?
We should greet the New Year with a sense of joyful anticipation. No matter what has happened this year, we have the power to create our next year as we choose. We are not the same person who started this year. We are wiser, deeper and richer from our experiences. We will take our knowledge and build on it to make a new year, unlike any we have lived before.
We should devote this New Year to gratitude and humility. We should realize how much grace we have received and determine that the next year will be the best one ever. It will be what we want it to be, so why not aim high. We deserve the very best that life has to offer. As for me, I’ll say “It’s not the end, rather the beginning”.
“Thank You for all the gifts and blessings this year, and hold my hands as this last night passes away.”
