Happy New Year Every Day!

Angelia woke up on New Years day not feeling like she was going to have a good day. She didn’t want to start the new year feeling badly because it might be an omen of things to come. What if we treated every day as a new year? Today is just one other event on the calendar. In fact, for much of the community, today is just an ordinary day. The Chinese celebrate New Year in February. My Persian close friends celebrate it in the spring. For me, New Year starts in September because I spent so many years in school and that’s when school always started.
Of course we want to look into the future with optimism and the desire for improvement in our lives. Jack Nicholson may have said it best in his movie “As Good As It Gets.” What if this is as good as it gets? Can we imagine this full life and ourselves as perfect or okay? Can we be happy with what we have? If we aren’t, what are we willing to do to change it so that we have a better life?
“The Matrix” is my favorite movie. It illustrates the path that is spiritual. Neo, the main character, is told that he is “The One” early on. He was filled by that concept with expectation of what it meant to him to be “The One”. He had to go through utter devastation and all his expectations had to be broken before he was able to see what being “The One” really meant. That’s true for all of us. When we begin our spiritual path, or any other path we choose, we often have a period of darkness where it doesn’t look like we will get what we want. We have to go through that period so we are really asking for that we can become clearer about what.
I was five when I knew that I wanted to become a doctor. I had limited experience and knowledge of doctors at that time. My experience of the medical field continued to develop as I grew, but I really had no concept of what it meant to be a doctor until I experienced it firsthand. We think about how things are in our minds, but until we have the full experience, we don’t really know what that is. I wanted to be a doctor so badly that I was willing to have whatever experience it took for me to get there.
Our understanding of love is also limited by our experience. Our parents love is confined by their pain and perceptions of what love is, and that might lead us to develop a distorted idea of what it is. Who has the ability to teach about love? We move through our life experiences, and learn as we grow. Each time an opportunity is had by us to love, or give to someone else, we grow. We learn the most from our ability to love in the real face of adversity and from forgiving what has hurt us in the past.
All the spiritual teachings speak of living in the now. In order to let yourself be in the now, you have to stop hanging on to the past. And….you have to be willing to live your fullest life right here and right now. On a level that is certain are all “The One” in that we each have special gifts and opportunities to offer. We each have to find our way through the maze of our existence to see who we are.
Happy New Year today, tomorrow, and all the tomorrows after that. May each day of your life be an entire new year of healing and growth.
woke through to New Years day not feeling like she would definitely have a very good day. She did not wish to start the latest year feeling badly as it may be an omen of items to come. Let’s say we treated every single day as an innovative new year? Today is just another day on the calendar. In fact, for a lot of the planet, today is merely an ordinary day. The Chinese celebrate New Year in February. My Persian friends celebrate it into the spring. For me, New Year starts in September because I spent so many years at school and that is when school always started.
Of course we want to look into the long term with optimism plus the wish to have improvement inside our lives. Jack Nicholson might have said it finest in his movie “As Good because It Gets.” Imagine if this is just like it gets? Can we imagine this life and ourselves as perfect or okay? Can we be pleased with everything we have? When we aren’t, exactly what are we happy to do in order to change it out to ensure that we now have an improved life?
“The Matrix” is my personal favorite movie. It illustrates the spiritual path beautifully. Neo, the main character, is told that he is ” The One” early on. That concept filled him with expectation of what it meant to him to be ” The One”. He previously to endure utter devastation and all sorts of his expectations needed to be broken before he had been in a position to see just what being ” The only” really meant. That is true for all of us. As soon as we begin our spiritual path, or any other path we choose, we quite often have a time period of darkness where it generally does not seem like we will get everything we want. We need to go through that period to ensure that we can become clearer as to what our company is really asking for. I became five once I knew that I needed in order to become a health care provider. I had limited experience and knowledge of doctors at that time. My connection with the medical field continued to develop as I grew, but I truly had no notion of what it meant to be a health care provider until I experienced it firsthand. We think of how things come in our minds, but until we possess the full experience, we do not truly know what this is certainly. I wanted to be a physician so badly that I happened to be ready to have whatever experience it took in my situation to have there.
Our comprehension of love is also tied to our experience. Our parents love is confined by their pain and perceptions of what love is, and that might lead us to develop a distorted idea of what it really is. Who has the ability to teach about love? We move through our life experiences, and learn once we grow. Each and every time we now have a chance to love, or give to some other person, we grow. We learn the most from our capacity to love in the face of adversity and from forgiving what has hurt us in past times. Most of the spiritual teachings speak of residing in the now. To be able to let yourself be within the now, you have to stop hanging onto the past. And….you need to be happy to live your fullest life right here and at this time. On a particular level our company is all “The One” in that we each have carefully selected presents and opportunities to offer. We each need certainly to find our way through the maze of y our existence to see who we have been.
Happy New Year today, tomorrow, and all sorts of the tomorrows from then on. May each day of your life be an entire new year of healing and growth.
