Another Year Coming to a Close: Are You Proud of You?
As this year comes to a close, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the historic nature of the past 365 days. We have a black president-elect! This alone is evidence that the United States is slowly but surely changing. We are a LONG way from what I would like to witness. Nonetheless, we are approaching significant change laced with specks of freedom in this corrupt country - but only IF we face the truth; and deal with it.
No president, governor, and/or city councilman can help us with the personal change we all may need to embrace. What we should do is prepare ourselves for the next minute, the next hour, and the next day while keeping in mind that as years quickly past we are called to EVOLVE, and not remain the same.
Let's start thinking about our self-evolution (that's if you are willing to 'move to the next phase') by thoughtfully recapping:
What have you done this year that makes you proud to be you?
If we live 2009 with this question in our frontal lobe we may just be able to list a few more 'proud accomplishments' on December 31, 2009.
I am going to work on this next year because I want my list to be long.
Let's check back in with each other on the last 31st day of 2009.
Peace and Love.

Karma vs. Spiritual Discernment
"I do not believe that there is an unseen force out there coming to haunt us as a result of a poor decision we made two-three years ago (retribution). My belief: as a result of a decision we made, we are now faced with its delayed reality (life)."
