What can we expect in the new year? Something that seems to remain constant is the duality of life. As individuals and as a society, there will be good days and there will be bad. There will be triumphs and there will be challenges. There will be strength and there will be weakness.
Throughout the year's ups and downs, here is a simple saying that speaks to both sides. When you awake in the morning to a new day, consider reciting this mantra to guide you towards the good you want to be a part of. And, when we wake to harrowing current events, making us feel like things are out of our control, this mantra affirms our role in finding simple ways to bring goodness into the world.
How can YOU get involved? SIMPLE!
Step#1: Start the day by saying the mantra to yourself.
Step #2: Think about the day ahead. What are the ways you can contribute to happiness and freedom for all? Thoughts, words or actions - they all count.
Step #3: Repeat each day. Whether doing something new or familiar, there's a variety of ways to do good.
Just as the mantra says we can all “contribute in some way.” What will you do each day to tip the balance towards the good? Wishing you a happy new year as a partner in finding ways to live your new mantra.
