Today wasn’t as beautiful as yesterday… a darker day, with the sun behind the clouds.
Have you made New Year’s Resolutions? I haven’t.
People normally start the year saying they will eat healthier… I’m vegetarian.
People normally start the year saying they will exercise more… I think my yoga is good (Thanks K*).
People normally start the year saying they will be better for others… that’s part of my life’s philosophy, based on the Reiki Principles by which I try (That’s what I try. I don’t always succeed, but that doesn’t mean I stop trying) to live my life and that are:
Japanese - English
Kyo dake wa: Just for today:
Okoru-na - Don't be angry
Shinpai suna - Don't worry
Kansha shite - Be grateful
Gyo-o hage me - Work hard
Hito ni shinsetsu ni - Be kind to others
Observe throughout the day, with all your effort, the arising of anger, then look deeper for its true cause.
Observe your mind throughout the day for the arising of worry and restlessness, look deeper at their roots.
Be mindful, each moment of your day, appreciating the gift of life, find the right livelihood for yourself and be honest in your work.
In your day, as you appreciate your life, be kind to yourself and to all beings.
So I think my resolutions have been made some time ago.
But I’m very worried!!!
Worried with the economical crisis that we might have to face and that can make 2009 one of the worst years.
Worried with the millions of people that have no food and may die of starvation.
Worried with the situation on Gaza Strip.
