Happy New Year 2021.
Welcome to this New Year – the here and the now of where we have arrived.
Given that 2020 was a year like no other for most of the world; this New Year 2021 offers up hope of transcending the challenges of what has been.
It becomes important to pause – ponder, consider and contemplate what and where we are directing our attention.
We all know that, ‘where the attention goes – the energy flows!’
The beginning of a New Year is a great time to ask our selves some important questions, this allows us to mindfully make ‘life by design rather than by default’.
Some questions to pause and ponder might be along the lines of:
What is really important for us? What is really Real? What is Reality, Truth, Freedom and Profound Peace?
If it might be, that what we feel is really important and are ultimately seeking, is Profound Peace; then my verse below may offer inspiration. The Mind fee from the conflict and confusion, distress and disappointment of being caught up in the world!
