Now that Christmas is three days in the past I am turning my attention to what I wish to accomplish in the new year of 2015. Some people have the mindset that making resolutions at the time of the new year is a good practice. That can be true. I myself believe you can make meaningful changes at any time of year. True change is a matter of determination, focus and the application of useful resources.
Over the course of the remaining days of 2014 I will be spending some time contemplating what I wish to achieve in 2015. I am determined to create some real change in my career life. Creating such change may necessitate some big leaps of faith. I will be exploring doctoral program options within the University of Hawaii system. I also hope to follow up regarding my past interest in the Foxfire Institute based in Berlin, Germany. I am not sure what is the best ultimate path for my future life. I am open to a variety of possibilities.
The old grief from what did and did not happen in 2013 and 2014 is still there. And yet I can feel my grief waning. The darkness of my grief must ultimately pass; each new day gives us the chance to make a new beginning in our lives. I intend to use the remaining time of my life in a good way.
I would like to feel I can ask my ancestors for help in the task of discerning my future life path. But I feel alienated from some of them. So I have recently changed the manner in which I pray and meditate. I ask for help from whatever benevolent ancestors I have on the other side of the veil who are willing to listen.
