My precious and appreciated visitors, it looks like we both may make it to another year though there is still no guarantee.

But it’s looks probable and hopeful so I would like to wish you a meaningful and valuable day and a priceless 2020 where you enhance your skills and abilities to recognize your ability to recognize and focus on what you have verses any misconceptions of lack.

We always have far more than we lack. We are often just too blind to this reality due to our focus and jaded/distorted beliefs, perspective, and point of view.

We were all born with infinite possibilities and potential and that does not diminish with time. It actually remains at least constant, and I am tempted to declare becomes more understandable with wisdom gained through life’s experience.

I am richer this moment than I have ever been, because the veil that has shielded my knowing is slowly losing its ability to keep from my senses, that which has always been present throughout my own unconsciousness.

I have no desire to cry woe ways me as others point out the challenges I have endured and must endure for these tests are in my path for whatever reason and for however long the season.

It is not personal. It is life. There are lessons to learn, countless lessons. I fear more that I will not be diligent enough to discern them all and thus will be tested again until my awareness has been sharpened not for my sole benefit but for others who may be ready for the words, message, and music I have to share.

Why are we humans so easy to surrender to the attitude of self pity. I have never seen a wild thing feel sorry for itself. I have seen things fight until that last recognizable ember of life remain, but never cry out why, why, even as surely as it’s life-cycle is passing.

So why do we humans cry out why oh why? Maybe it is time to ask “what” with more frequency and deeper fervency.

  • What is this here in front of me?
  • What do I really see?
  • Want to use why, then ask why do I see it the way that I am?
  • Are there any other reasons or possibilities? and finally
  • How is any or all of this information gained useful to me?

There is no space for self-pity under such scrutiny and investigation. Only positive inquiry that surely will unleash what is required or at least be a better use of energy than crying why, should be your call to action.

It is the last day of the year (2019) and yet it is still the first day of the remainder of our life. What is there to cry over if this is the beginning and not the end?

What hardship have I encountered in this very moment that is so numbing and overwhelming that I cannot carry on? I am only 1 hour old in this new life. This new moment that has met me is truly unlike any other unless I am insistent in shaping it and manifesting distant memories of yesterday into my reality of today.  This is equally true for you.

Really, what is so pressing, urgent, and certain for today, if today is all there is until the next today.  Isn't today the next gifted present moment of infinite possibilities? Isn't it really true that we have so much power at our disposal at any given moment, because in actuality we have so much control over our life?  

We routinely and lazily convince ourselves that we are less than we really are; out of ignorance or a willful disregard of this truth.  We are blinded and frightened by who we really are and what we are really capable of and this is really what must change and I hope for all of us in 2020 and the years to come.  This is the awakening that is sorely needed.

These are ideas and concepts philosophers and others have pontificated over for centuries and for good reason. Few listen and have heard, instead we the masses cling to our shackles that comfort us verses embracing the uncertainty yet true liberation and freedom that awaits each and everyone of us if we will merely accept that yesterday is gone forever and whatever lingers from it in this present moment is being addressed for the first time in this new life.  So why carry built up anxiety, stress, fear and doubt that has no reality or purpose in this first new day?

Release it for it is not real. Let it go so that you can use this new life, this new day, to see your challenges with new opportunities and wonder. There you will find what has always been right in front of you. There you will find your freedom. There you will understand exactly what I mean for I cannot spell it out for you, for that is not how it works.

But if we are diligent, we will clearly see how free we really are and how much we wrap ourselves in the illusions of our preconceived ideas. We are constantly creating meaning verses "being" and thus limiting ourselves from seeing what is really there.

It really is right there, Yes right there in front of you; for you to clearly see and get free.

Happy New Year to all of you who have made it. It was never a guarantee. If you have a challenge or calamity fight but not from a state of fear. Slow your heart rate and let yourself be clear. First moment, first day, new variables, resources, and day. Breathe and recognize who you are.

You were born to live this day so live and thrive. Isn’t that the purpose of life, to live, not tremble and cry. You have a purpose. You have a task to achieve.

Mine is to personally facilitate or provide an opportunity for every person on the planet to know thyself and seize the day; ergo Nosce te Ipsum et Carpe Diem, in order for them (YOU) to truly BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and your DREAMS. Then to insure they (you) have the skills to achieve them.

Only you know your purpose but there is more to you than meets the eye. You have something greater than you to achieve that must be released into the world before you end up like the 153,000 people that did not make it to today or the 153,000 who awoke today who will not make it to January 1, 2020.

Do not let your purpose disappear with you by being distracted by your why’s. Today is the best day of your life for it is the first day of the rest of your life. Release yourself from the excuses you gave yourself yesterday for they are not relevant today. Rejoice, see the beauty of your life and the treasures and gifts that surround you.

Even in a hurricane/typhoon there is beauty and majesticness. There is even calm in the midst of the raging storm where destructive force and its aftermath are evident and all around.

In all that chaos and power you have the possibility to be that tree that did not fall, that house that remained standing, that person who was not swept away. You have the possibility unless you decide you do not.

So either kiss your bottom goodbye and ignore the gift of this first day of the rest of your life or be ready for anything that arises today and enjoy your life to the fullest.
