Happy New Year

It is that time of the year to put the past year to rest and ring in the new. For me I will be enhancing my ways. The changes that I started in the past year will be enhanced for more effectively making my life and those around me better.

My New Year’s Resolutions

  1. Do no harm to others.
  2. Be kind to everyone.
  3. Be mindful in everything I say and do.
  4. Meditate daily.
  5. Set aside more time for reflection.
  6. Put down that TV remote and set aside more time for writing and reading.
  7. Work on making relationships stronger.
  8. Live Simply and make my life spectacular.
  9. And most of all BE HAPPY!

I will implement all of these items building to make myself a better person. I am not a materialistic person. Material things is not what matters, life is what matters. Live life!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year and may you have an abundance of happiness and love in the coming year.

Imagine…

Imagine a world with Peace and Harmony. The words in John Lennon’s song Imagine have a profound meaning if you just listen. I saw the following on another website and just had to share it. Let’s all be a dreamer and strive for Peace throughout the world.

Peace, love, and happiness to us all!

Change the World

There are billions of us on this tiny blue dot in this universe we live. Each and every one of us is so small and insignificant compared to the overall picture of this earth and in the whole universe.

In society, no matter what your religion, race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or color, we need to strive to be better. We all need to strive for wisdom, learn compassion, and have the courage to change. Wash the negativity from your mind. What is the phrase used widely today, “Don’t be a hater.”

Lay down your guns. Why do we need guns if we all want a peaceful society? All it takes is one brief moment to take a life. That fraction of time changes lives. Even if it was unintentional. Accidents happen all the time, especially with children.

“All the energy that the human race uses to destroy each other can be used wisely to underscore our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another.” I believe Carl Sagan said that in one of his videos.

We humans are capable of greatness if we can choose the right path. We need to save ourselves from our childish mistakes. It is not all about you and it is not all about me. It is all about the collective. It is not about how much stuff you can collect and own. It is not about keeping up with the Joneses but caring and helping the Joneses. Take a little time out of your schedule and do for those that cannot do for themselves. Just do one act of kindness and see how you feel afterwards.

All the sayings and proverbs in the world do not mean a thing unless you take action. You can read them all you want. That alone will not make change.

It all starts from within oneself. I vow to do my part to change the world. Join in on changing the world because without change this pale blue dot…well it may just cease to exist.

Take care of our planet, it is the only one we have. Take care of humanity and take care of one another.

Peace, love, and happiness to us all!

Interesting read. I finished reading it several weeks ago but have just now got around to this post. Events come along for a reason and I think my introduction to this book happens at just the right time in my life. I can relate to Ed with his life in a quandary. Everything is going wrong in his life, from bad relationship to job troubles. He meets an unlikely Buddhist name Geoff in a pub. To Geoff problems are just facts. It’s our attitude towards them that makes us suffer or not.

Geoff uses a comparison of low tide and high tide to describe life states; “It’s your life state, mate. I told you the second time I met you: if your life condition’s low all this negative stuff just appears, like the rocks at low tide. They’re always there, but when the tide’s in – when your life condition is high – they disappear. You literally rise above it all…” This is so true. When your life state is strong, you feel like you can conquer the world. The strong actually go out seeking challenges: more dragons to fight, more damsels to rescue, whatever the case may be.

Ed’s realization is that Buddhahood is not some airy-fairy mental thing, or about sitting on a mountaintop somewhere being ‘enlightened’. It’s about getting your hands dirty and actually changing things for the better. As Geoff says approach everything with WCC—wisdom, courage and compassion—the wisdom to know what to do, the courage to do it, and the compassion that through the action everyone would benefit.

I love this book. Even though it is fiction, it still adheres to the beliefs of Buddhism. Now that I have read it, Buddhism has intrigued me even more.

Peace

Giving is The Best Communication
