A NEW YEAR… A NEW DAY… A NEW MOMENT
A reflection on practice by Marcia Rose
2023 New Year Greeting
A NEW YEAR… A NEW DAY… A NEW MOMENT. This is our ‘time.’ How we fill our time over the years, days and moments is the ‘story’ – the essence of our life.
So many possible questions and reflections can arise on the cusp of this time frame that so many of us on the planet share and attend to in various ways… the conclusion of one year and the arising of a ‘new year’.
“What am I grateful for?” One of the most essential questions of our lives.
“Have I wholeheartedly loved at least a few beings?”
“Have I lived responsibly in relationship to the amazing and vast array of life forms on this
little blue dot that we all share?”
“Have I learned from what I and maybe others have deemed as my mistakes?”
“What affords/brings me the deepest sense of ease and well-being in my life?”
“What have I done to help bring joy, light and ease into the lives of other living beings?”
This is our time… this time of NOW! This is our time of incredible opportunity… our time of life… THE TIME OF OUR LIFE! We can choose to live it wisely, lovingly and compassionately.
From all of us here at The Mountain Hermitage… we deeply appreciate you and send boundless gratitude for your interest, support of and participation in our various Dharma offerings.
May this ‘new year’ be filled with peace, friendship, love, good health, joy and an abiding sense of ease and well-being for you and for all your dear ones… and for all beings everywhere.
