You had plenty to offer in the way of learning opportunities. Personally, I relearned that we are all ultimately alone, that this material world is largely illusory and that if you expect anything at all of people, they will let you down. I learned that we have yet another cultural crisis to contend with: our emotionally ill-equipped children. The truth is that our planet, our youth and our elderly, our politics and our processes are all broken. To use a crude, tech metaphor we need to update our operating system.
I hope the Mayans were right in one sense: we need alot of these ongoing disasters to end.
2013, our hopes are still high. Please teach us the ancient art of kindness. We need a refresher. Let peace break out. Let the big shift begin. Even if it is painful, let’s try to replace the racket with silence. Let’s take a deep breath.
For me personally, I ask that you point me in a direction where I will be useful to my community, to my world. Protect all of us from that sneaky ego that sets us up for pain and disappointment.
It’s a tall order. I’m pretty sure I made the same requests last year. I think we are ready, as a community, as a species, as an interdependent ecosystem. Let’s get down to the bottom of all this. And let’s all transcend.
Blessings to All,
