It is Christmas Eve. A wonderful time for re-evaluating your relationship with your life. We know all about what needs to be changed about the world. What needs to be changed about you? About your relationship with you? About your relationship with the world? It is a week until New Year's Eve. The New Year is the traditional time to consider what needs to be new about us in honor of a new year, a new beginning, replete with resolutions and high hopes for "this year being different." We have a week to focus on our relationship with our life and the world. Not to think, but to listen. We do not get anywhere we need to be by thinking, but by listening, by looking, by seeing, by hearing, by reflecting/connecting and forming new realizations. What do we need to realize? We have no idea. So thinking cannot get us there. Spend your time in the next week, sitting still, being quiet, listening, looking, open to what comes up in the silence, waiting for things to arise with a particular "charge" about them that "catches your eye," and "calls your name," and demands that you pay attention. Look closer at those things, just watching, just seeing, just hearing, holding everything in your awareness, writing down what needs to be written down, and continuing to sit still, be quiet, and listen, look... And see where you are in a week. Perhaps the mud will settle, and the water will clear, and you will know what you are being called to do. Then there is doing it. Throughout the New Year, and beyond!
