  1. Happy New Year!!

    We have before us a new year.

    What a blessing, and what an opportunity.

    I know that we can have a great and prosperous year, regardless of where we are starting at this time. Even if your job changed or your rerlationships need work, or you have distressing family problems, the new year is a time for hope with a firm prospect of things getting better.

    Let’s put the difficulties behind us, even failed terrorist attacks and perennial bad economic news that seems to float around in big black clouds.

    With all its problems, difficulties, bad people and rough situations, it is still a wonderful world with limitless opportunities!

    See how you can find your opportunities in your own genius mind!

    Choose not to be limited by your past and your circumstances.

    Access you own internal power.

    “Long Quiet Highway” is a wonderful read by Zen Buddhist Natalie Goldberg. Beautiful, crystalline prose. Worth purchasing so you can re-visit again and again.
