Let our New Year’s resolution be this

Let our New Year’s resolution be this:

We will be there for one another as
fellow members of humanity, in the
finest sense of the word.”

 ~ Goran Persson, former prime minister of Sweden 

As we are once again in the midst of the holiday season, I sit here looking for  words of inspiration to share to wish you a wonderful December. The holidays are here, with all the joys and experiences of this season of giving and love. Yet it is a complicated and conflicted world in which we live, and global peace is still our collective dream.

 So I will keep my message simple and yet ever so challenging. Find peace, make peace, keep peace. In your heart. In your actions. In your morning intention when you wake. In what you know to be true in your heart as you drift to sleep. Make peace and love the central themes of how you interact with your family, your children, the pushy person at the store and the rude driver in the other car who cuts you off.

 Do this because we need each and every one of us together to build collective peace, love and unity—this is a grassroots action we can all become active in every day. Today and always, no phrase rings truer than the traditional message of the season: “On Earth peace, and goodwill to all.”

 From everyone here in our Natural Awakenings Rhode Island family to you and those you hold dear, we wish you every joy this holiday season. May you find the opportunities to celebrate and find inspiration in the little pleasures of the season; may you find moments of blissful inner stillness; may you find comfort from suffering; and may you be surrounded in love and kindness.

 Happy Holidays!

And many blessings for love and success in the New Year.
