With the new year comes a time of reflection of what has been and what one wishes for. Rather than setting specific goals (or maybe in addition to), the New year can be guided by a growing inner awareness that could bring harmony, joy and a sense of beauty:
Become carefully attentive to the times when you feel centered or at peace. Rediscover what it is that you do that is an expression of your deepest values. Cultivate the ways that express what is uniquely you.
Happy New Year!
The next reading will be: Madness and Creativity, by Ann Belford Ulanov
