Now Is The Time

Happy New Year!

Collectively we look at a new year as a time of new beginnings.  A chance to wipe the slate clean, to reimagine and recreate our lives anew. 

New beginnings are everywhere though.  In every moment, in every choice, we hold the possibility of something new.

The question is what we want to choose. What new beginning we’d like to experience. 

If you’ve read Conversations with God, you may be familiar with a line that says “the purpose of life is to create your Self anew, in the next grandest version of the greatest vision you ever held about Who You Are. It is to announce and become, express and fulfil, experience and know your true Self.”

What is the grandest version of the greatest vision you hold about who you are?

What is the grandest version of the greatest vision you hold for how the world could be? 

None of us hold the power alone to direct the world.  We carry that power together.  But it’s in every choice we make – indeed, every thought we think – that we have the option of affecting change and redirecting the way we collectively move and live.

In reality, our choices are never for us alone.  

As we move gently into this new beginning, I’ll leave you with you a poem that is speaking to me.  

I’d love to hear what is speaking to you. 

Now is the time.
Now is the time to know
That all that you do is sacred.

Now, why not consider
A lasting truce with yourself and God?

Now is the time to understand
That all your ideas of right and wrong
Were just a child’s training wheels
To be laid aside
When you can finally live
with veracity and love.

Now is the time for the world to know
That every thought and action is sacred.
That this is the time
For you to compute the impossibility
That there is anything
But Grace.

Now is the season to know
That everything you do
Is Sacred.
