What is it about a New Year?

Part of it is that unity of self is a challenge to generate in regards to change.

There are beginnings and “resolutions”, but they usually grow from,and often remain paired with, old losses or perceived failures – which sort of creates a paradoxical/oxymoronic condition.

We want to start the new, but that means leaving behind the old. We “resolve” to change but overlook the reality that resolution also means ending as well.

These patterns emerge from the fact that each of us has many voices, many conflicting desires, intentions and fears.

If we can at least suspend self-judgement when one intention yields for a time to a differing one, old and new, we Can return again and again to our new resolve, only now able to bring, and be aware of, progress already made.

Sanity in 2016!
