Make 2023 A Year Of Good

January 2, 2023

As we begin another new year, another new, another beginning, we look forward to all that we wish for.  The good that we wish for ourselves, is the good that we wish for others and vice-versa.

For this New Year, let’s do more than just wish.  Let’s make this a “Happy New Year”, a year of good.  Let’s make this the year where our deeds make our wishes reality.  A year where we tap into “all of our possibilities” and potential to become the human we were destined and created to be. A year where we each do our unique part to make our world a better one.  A year where we each “Shine A Little Light”!  No matter what the circumstances are. We can get there by constantly striving to make all of our actions directed to a purpose higher than just ourselves. All that we need and the world we all wish for is in our hands.

Many years ago there was this great old wise man, a seer, who was coming to a town to speak.  His reputation preceded him, so that many people waited with great anticipation for his arrival and then went to hear him speak.  Among them, was this one young and skeptical man, who went simply to challenge the wise man.  After the wise man spoke, there was a Q&A. When it was the young mans turn, he put out his cupped hands and asked the wise man what was in his hands. The wise man replied, “two little birds”, which was correct. The young man was impressed, but he was still skeptical, so he asked whether they were dead or alive. The wise man knew that if he replied, “they’re dead”, the young man would open his hands and the birds would fly away. If he replied “they’re alive”, the young man would crush the birds in his hands. The wise man’s reply was simply

“The Answer Is All In Your Hands.”

“Each person must see himself as though the entire world were held in balance and any deed he may do could tip the scales.” – Maimonides

May 2023 be your best year ever…so far!!

Healthy and Happy 2023

Be Good Do Good Think Good Be Healthy Be A Light

      Thank You So Much Rafael
      Receiving comments like yours means a great deal to me. Knowing that my words helps people “climb their mountain” is why I do this. It also keeps me doing this even if I’m sometimes MIA

      Thank You so much Kirk
      It’s because of loyal readers like you that I’m reminded that my words matter and touch some. This is why I do this. I hope that my light warms. Admittedly, Sometimes I need to be reminded
      I would be tremendously gratified if I could reach more people. I am hopeful that those like you would share the posts.
