Welcome to 2020. It’s a new decade bursting with opportunities. Show of hands. How many of us actually thought we’d make it this far? Many of the older SCI/FI stories didn’t paint a rosy picture of our chances. Other, more hopeful authors imagined we would advance to levels humanity has not achieved as of yet. I admire their faith and would love to walk in the world they’d envisioned for us.
Don’t get discouraged. We still have time to grow! Let’s get started.
Building a Better Human (Inside Ourselves)
Human Beings are complex creatures with aspects of the Dark and Light inside our hearts. It is our capacity to monitor our intent and choose appropriate action that provides us with the opportunity of enlightened growth. But where to start? Here are a few basic suggestions to target for 2020:
Be Kind– Don’t strive for Sainthood. Kindness means thinking of other creatures who walk the world with us. Do the little acts of giving and thoughtfulness without expecting personal gain
Be Trustworthy– Be a fortress of integrity and honesty to your friends. Keep hurtful gossip from your lips
Be Forgiving– Don’t forget that others are walking life’s path without a handbook just like you. Be patient with their frailties and understanding of their falls
Be Loving– Perhaps the greatest gift humanity as to offer the world is our capacity to love
We can do it, fellow travelers! Let’s help each other grow.
Be Positive. Be Happy. Be Well.
