“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
I rarely make New Year’s resolutions, but this year I feel in need of them. However, if I’m going to make any real changes, I need to take stock of where I am in my life right now. To quote from the Runes, “the field must be tilled before the seed can be planted… rectification must come before progress.”
Here’s what I want to be feeling in my life: expansive and joyous; energized; empowered; creatively alive. Here’s what I’m actually feeling in my life: frustrated; angry; sad, clogged and confused. The healing lies in acceptance. I accept where I am today.
It’s taken me nearly two weeks, but I’ve gotten clear on my intention for the year. Call it a New Year’s resolution, if you want. Here it is: To live a life of integrity. To be who I truly am. To live from the heart. To be genuine, authentic and real. And in so doing, to embark on the path of freedom!
