As We Are

Your opinion of the world around you tells more about you than it does about the world. There are many things in the world about which you do not know, but you know you. What you think and what you see are reflections of your own perspective. They demonstrate what you have learned to see and what you expect to see. If you run into a foul person during your day, you have run into a foul person. If you run into foul people throughout your day, it is more likely that you are the foul person. We reflect what we are, and we describe that in how we perceive our surroundings.

Only One Person

Friends and family will all come and go. Even the dearest and more closely regarded loved ones are not permanent and will not be with you in every moment of every day. There is one person who gets most of your time and most of your attention. If you are not friends with that person, you are missing out on the best of life. That is definitely something worth working on to correct.

The More You Know

Learn yourself. The more you know about yourself, the less the misunderstandings of those around you can cause you harm. The tension, the conflict comes from Am I or Am I Not? Once you know, there is no tension. What other people believe reflects upon them, not you. You are not what they believe. Learn, and decide who you are.

Do Not Fight

Choose your battles. You do not have to accept every invitation to fight that you receive. Do not waste your time or your effort will it will not serve a purpose. At the same time, however, know what you want to achieve. There are more ways to win that victory in battle. A battle that cannot be won in the strictest sense may still lead to the achievement of some other, preferable goal. Know your heart, understand your goals, and do what works for those.

Between The Two

We are not merely one thing or another. We are each different things based on the perception and perspective of the observer, and we are even, at times, the observer. We can be everything, and we can be nothing, but, in the balance, we are something in between. It is between the gates of all or nothing where we must live our lives, and it is within these varied halls that we must chart our course. Do not cling so tightly to one thing that you forget the possibilities. Among all of the various answers available in life, it is rare indeed that only one of the most extreme would be the correct answer. Enjoy the possibilities.

One With The Earth

Whatever befalls the Earth befalls those who dwell upon the Earth. We are inextricably linked. It is only reasonable to keep one's home clean and safe. It is only courtesy to not befoul the home of another. These ideas are not cutting edge philosophy, yet they are so often forgotten. Perhaps it is time we remember.

Start Where You Are

We all make mistakes. We realize them, we regret them, and, far too often, we are crippled by them. We cannot go back and change what we have done, so we sit back and despair. We cannot go back, of course, but we can begin again at any moment of our choosing. We can stop regretting, and we can start to build something new. Let the past be your teacher, not your jailer. Begin where you are, and go forward.

A Single Seed

We are all seeds, each and every one of us. One seed is a beginning. A beginning sets the path. The path is the Way. One seed is all it takes. Let yourself be that seed, and don't worry about the rest of the forest. It has its own seeds, and it's happening around you.

As Good As You Are

We are often tempted to respond in kind, to retaliate. It is common to hear such things as, "But did you see what he did?" Here's the thing, though: If you want to be better, you have to actually be better. You have to make the effort to step up, step forward, and keep going. Making excuses, pointing to the worst examples, responding in kind, none of these things can make us better people. In order to be better people, we have to be better people. It is both that simple and that complicated.

Conquer Yourself

There is a strong desire to make a better world, but we tend to waste time flailing around at things we cannot change while ignoring or forgetting things we can change. If you want a better world, start with a better self. Your example may encourage someone else to do the same. If enough people follow that simple principle, like magic, you end up with a better world.

Who You Are

The biggest roadblock to becoming who you want to be is your imagination of who you are. We have preconceived notions, and these preconceived notions get in the way. We think we know something, so we don't learn. If we don't learn, we can't grow, and we can't become. Let go of who you imagine you are, and allow yourself to see everything as it is.

Happy New Year 2018

Where does the time go? As we welcome the new year, take a moment to reflect on what you have learned and accomplished in the past year. Take a moment to consider what you might learn and accomplish in the coming year. I made a resolution many years ago to not make any more New Year's resolutions, and, frankly, that was the only resolution I ever managed to keep, but don't think of it in terms of resolutions. Think of it as, "What am I going to do today?" and then ask the same question tomorrow. As you walk the Way, the Way appears. That's how we get where we're going, one day, one step at a time. Take the next step to where you want to be, and then take the next one. Pause when you have to, but keep moving forward.

Happy New Year, everybody, from our family to yours. Athbhliain faoi mhaise duit! Namaste.
