New Year, New Life for Me —
Do I Accept It?
As I embrace my new year, I pause.
I place my attention gently into the stillness of my heart, fully present to this moment, a time that will never, ever return.
It is the true joy of life, to realize the purpose for which I was born.
Through a mighty force of Nature I am here, right now to take on the next task I am meant to perform.
In the quiet in which I immerse myself, I ask God, What is it I am supposed to begin?
I listen and the answer is very clear, whether or not I see it, for it may seem far too trivial for someone as important as me.
But it truly is just that, to do the next right thing.
My heart knows I am not to follow some feverish, selfish little clod of grievances – feeling that the world will not devote itself to my puny notion of how things beyond my control ought to be.
I know I am the creator of my life’s path; no-one else’s.
As Invictus has it – “I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.”
