Happy, Happy, Happy New Year
May we find contentment in Enough. In having good food to eat and clean water to drink and a warm place to sleep.
May we seek to help others find that same contentment. May we, by our actions and words and practices, work to be peacemakers, bread-sharers, friend-makers.
May Israel and Palestine find a way to end their warring ways. May we all work to support such. May Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Colombia, the Sudan, the US and all the dangerous places of the world find more peace this year and may we work towards that end.
May our hard-pressed environment and its subset, the economy, find some relief from over-taxation. May we change our practices to better provide that relief.
Here's wishing our incoming president luck - he's going to need it. What a mess we seem to be in these days.
So, here's to a blessed new year for us all. May we find the wisdom for living a-right in these troubled days, and the strength to follow the paths of wisdom and contentment.
Happy New Year.
