Savanna 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 different night 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 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 best have said it 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? That we have a better life if we aren't, what are we willing to do to change it so?

"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 knowledge and experience of doctors at that time. My experience of the medical field continued to develop until I experienced it firsthand as I grew, but I really had no concept of what it meant to be a doctor. We think about how things are in our minds, but we don't really know what that is until we have the full experience. I wanted to be a doctor so badly for me to get there that I was willing to have whatever experience it took.

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 an idea that is distorted of 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 teachings that are spiritual 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 certain level we 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 today, tomorrow, and all the tomorrows after that year. May each day of your life be an entire year that is new of and growth.

woke up on New Years day not feeling like she was going to have a good day. She did not desire to start the new year feeling badly given that it may be an omen of what to come. Imagine if we treated each and every day as a brand new year? Today is just another day from the calendar. In fact, for much of the world, today is just a typical day. The Chinese celebrate New Year in February. My Persian friends celebrate it when you look at the spring. In my situation, New Year starts in September because I spent a lot of years at school and that's when school always started.

Needless to say we should look into the long run with optimism additionally the desire for improvement in our lives. Jack Nicholson may have said it finest in his movie “As Good As It Gets.” Let's say this can be just like it gets? Can we imagine this life and ourselves as perfect or okay? Can we be pleased with what we have? Whenever we are not, exactly what are we prepared to do in order to change it out to make certain that we now have a better life?

"The Matrix" is my personal favorite movie. It illustrates the spiritual path beautifully. Neo, the key character, is told that he's " The One" early on. That concept filled him with expectation of what it supposed to him to be " The One". He had to endure utter devastation and all his expectations must be broken before he was in a position to see just what being " The only" really meant. That's true for all those. As soon as we begin our spiritual path, or just about any other path we choose, we quite often have a time period of darkness where it does not look like we are going to get what we want. We have to go through that period to ensure that we could become clearer about what we have been really asking for. I was five once I knew that I needed in order to become a physician. I experienced limited experience and knowledge of doctors in those days. My experience of the medical field continued to develop when I grew, but I truly had no notion of what it supposed to be a health care provider until I experienced it firsthand. We think of how things have been in our minds, but until we possess the full experience, we don't truly know what that is. I desired to be a health care provider so badly that I became happy to have whatever experience it took in my situation to obtain there.

Our comprehension of love can be limited by our experience. Our parents love is confined by their pain and perceptions of what love is, and therefore might lead us to produce a distorted concept of what it really is. Who has the capability to teach about love? We move through our life experiences, and learn once we grow. Every time we now have a way to love, or share with someone else, we grow. We learn the most from our capacity to love when confronted with adversity and from forgiving what has hurt us in the past. All the spiritual teachings speak of living in the now. So that you can let yourself be into the now, you need to stop hanging about the past. And....you need to be prepared to live your fullest life the following and at this time. On a specific level we are all "The One" in that people each have special gifts and opportunities to offer. We each have to find our way through the maze of y our existence to see who our company is.

Happy New Year today, tomorrow, and all the tomorrows after that. May each day of your life be a whole new year of healing and growth.
