We all know that New Year’s resolutions don’t work. Maybe because they are generally about fixing and changing things about ourselves … and resisting some aspect of the way things are right now.
The key question is: who are we being? In other words, what aspects of ourselves do we want to experience in 2018? Two people could carry out almost identical sets of actions in any given period, but the ‘being’ they bring to those actions could bring a very different experience and very different results, both for those individuals and for the people around them.
Now’s as good a time as any to think about that and to make a choice. There are no ‘should’s here. No rights and wrongs. Just pure choice.
Here’s a quote from Book 3 of ‘Conversations with God’ by Neale Donald Walsh, which I hope you’ll like:
“Everything depends on who you think you are, and what you are trying to do.
If your objective is to live a life of peace, joy and love – violence does not work. This has already been demonstrated.
If your objective is to live a life of good health and great longevity, consuming dead flesh, smoking known carcinogens, and drinking volumes of nerve-deadening, brain-frying liquids does not work. This has already been demonstrated.
If your objective is to raise offspring free of violence and rage, putting them directly in front of vivid depictions of violence and rage for years does not work. This has already been demonstrated.
If your objective is to care for Earth, and wisely husband her resources, acting as if those resources are limitless does not work. This has already been demonstrated.
If your objective is to discover and cultivate a relationship with a loving God, so that religion can make a difference in the affairs of humans, then teaching of a god of punishment and terrible retribution does not work. This, too, has already been demonstrated.
Motive is everything. Objectives determine outcomes. Life proceeds out of your intention. Your true intention is revealed in your actions, and your actions are determined by your true intention. As with everything in life (and life itself), it is a circle.”
Wishing you a very Happy New Year,
