Good Aftern oon,
As the year 2020 draws to a close, I find it time to reflect. I think most of us do that. We look back at the year perhaps to take stock of where we have been, things we wish we might have handled differently, things we consider our successes, all in all, just to see how far we have come.
For many that may be something like finding a new job, finishing a project, opening a new chapter in our lives, the loss of loved ones, the possibility of regret, the joy of celebrating accomplishments of our children, grandchildren, friends, family members.
To say that this year was unusual is a understatement. Who knew as we all celebrated the dawn of 2020 so much more would unfold. These are my thoughts,
I have been learning to find the peace within all the chaos without. For me 2020 brought with it the loss of my mother, the loss of an uncle and an aunt. There is only one left in that generational line. Talk about bringing us to the reality of our own mortality. Then in March so much more began to unfold, and not just here in the U.S. but worldwide.
I won't go into all that occurred, we all saw it or experienced it. When did we become so intolerant of each other's beliefs? Will we be united as one again? I realize that we are each unique, we each hold our own special place in this world, and as I sit here today typing this, I realize just how fragile our human life is. Could I have been more considerate, more compassionate? Should I have spent more time with those who are now gone? Did I tell them enough how much I loved them? Should I have called more frequently?
It'a all water under the bridge now. Three in one year. I believe they have only transitioned to a state of pure spirit. They are not far, they are always just a whisper, a thought, a laugh. I know they are watching as the world seems to be going mad, and I am grateful that they are not here for what will come. I am especially grateful that my mother decided to leave BEFORE all this started, there is that.
Each one holds a place in my heart and the hearts of the others their going has impacted. May we each find comfort in the memories of them that we have. For all those who read this, find that peace within yourself. I understand how difficult that may be at times, but it is so very critical. Unplug, it's what I have done. I find I cannot stay plugged into the outside world for great lenghths of time. So, for all of you, do what YOU need to do for YOU. Rest, laugh, enjoy being outside in nature. Connect with Mother Earth, go for a walk, sit and just do nothing.
Things are always changing, and I believe that we will see some very positive changes in Humanity. Love, love even those you consider your enemy. We can each do that, it isn't all that difficult, it's not like we have to interact with them to send them love.
Sending you all much Love, Light, Peace, Health, Prosperity, and Joy!
I'm just an ordinary person on my path to enlightenment. I enjoy learning, and lately I'm learning how to enjoy the challenges that present themselves as opportunities for me to grow. I hope that you find encouragement and inspiration through this blog.
