Start The New Year With A Clean Slate

Hi All,

The New Year brings with it the perception of a clean slate, an opportunity to re-start your life with a completely fresh perspective.  Actually, I try to practice forgiveness every day by allowing the events of the past to be in the past (it is joyous and freeing when I am actually able to do it) so that each new day or even each new moment brings with it a clean slate. 

Our thoughts and beliefs are what mold our destiny.  To achieve our greatest potential, our thoughts, actions, visions, missions and purposes must be congruent with our conscious and unconscious beliefs.  When you travel through your life unconsciously with no congruency of purpose, mission, vision, thought and action it always seems as though the world is “doing it to you” and the external environment (economic, social or even the weather) controls what happens to you.  But when you live life with a clear purpose, mission and vision and you focus your efforts on having thoughts and actions that are congruent with this, now you have the ABSOLUTE ABILITY TO MANIFEST YOUR OWN DESTINY in the way you want it to be.

Every day I see my children and the children in my practice smile, giggle and laugh for no other reason than their hearts are filled with joy and they have no “baggage” to muddy their life experience.  My wish for all of you this new year is that: Every day brings you a fresh new star; You see the world through the eyes of a child reveling in the glory of the simplest of things; You share this joy and love with everyone you meet; and You make this a better world, 1 smile, 1 hug, 1 kind word and 1 selfless action at a time.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

– Marcel ProustChange your life situation by changing your mind and the way you see/experience the world.  If you are waiting for things to get better, you will live a lifetime spent waiting.  If you see those people that challenge you most as your greatest teachers and those “bad” things that happen as the challenges sent to you to help you grow into the glorious being you truly are, all of the sudden life takes on a completely different hue.

These are not easy thing to do but DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY.  Take baby steps and do one thing at a time.  There is no past or future, just the present, Live it and enjoy it. 

In the final analysis, the great seekers of wisdom found that it is not what you know, but how you live that counts.  So live as if every moment was your last and as if you would be remembered in perpetuity by the way you acted just a moment ago.


I hope the glow in my heart when writing this shines upon you as you read it.

I Love You for being you now share your love with someone else.
