A New Year

So here I am. It's 1:49 on January 1, 2010. A wonderful time to blog.

Well I guess I could tell you how I welcomed in 2010! It was a new experience. Sitting in a temple hearing everyone around me singing hymns. Women in brightly coloured Indian suits decorated every inch of the floor at our Gurdwara. It was quite lovely. I'm hoping that the divinity will linger and this year will be more positive for the world.


I hope for

less numbing pain
less running around like headless animals, blood spurting
less blind faith
less power imbalances
and chemical imbalances and work imbalances and money imbalances
less war
less bombs, guns, grenades
less fury
less innocent killed
less genocide
less children suffering
less drug and alcohol abuse
less women powerless
less loneliness.
less streets polluted with ignorance
less streets polluted with disease
less streets polluted with lost souls
less corrupted air
less last resorts
less overconsumption
less stuffing our faces with material goods until we are so stuffed we burst
less problems.
less depression, anxiety, and suicide.
less negativity and pessimism.

more joy, laughter, and freedom
more opportunities for women to thrive
more children that have food and education
more people aware of UWC and Pearson
more music and dancing and singing
more compassion for self, for others, and for the Earth
more teenagers with high self esteem
more consciousness
more acceptance of ourselves
more acceptance of what is
more appreciating of the Earth
more lighthearts and heavycuddles
Just more cuddles
more wondering, more pondering, more questions
more accountability
more governments who are responsible
more helping each other
more people who love each other
more lying in the grass making objects of clouds
and jumping on trampolines
more peace and flowers and presence
more understanding.
more solutions.
more open eyes
more open ears
more open arms
more open hearts
more open minds
more kindred souls
more seeds sown
more trees hugged
more people supported
more weight shared, more equality, more creativity, more time
spent on things that matter.

What matters to you?

I want

more love
more love
more love
