Hope at the New Year’s Dawn

Post Date: January 1st, 2015


A new year dawns and I am filled with hope.

Hope that despite tragedies and losses, life goes on.

Hope that in the midst of pettiness and pain, lessons are learned.

Hope that notwithstanding physical limitations, fitness can increase.

Hope that even in aging, possibilities abound.

Hope that for all the noise of consumerism, quiet service and giving exist.

Hope that in spite of a superficial society, consciousness can expand.

Hope that even in the daily grind, mirth and meaning surface.

Hope that relationships grow and deepen.

Hope that protesters’ messages are being heard and acted on.

Hope that we are loved by ancestors.

Hope that our winter dreams are germinating soul growth.

Hope that living with love improves the planet.
