Doesn't Get Stuck, Have You?
Stay in the flow of time to regenerate
your reality every moment.
I thought time would be the most
appropriate topic for this New Year's Day issue. After all,
father time is dead today and baby time is born, or so they
In our noun-oriented culture where we focus on things--material
items, solutions to problems, healthy relationships, solid
careers, hopeful futures--it's easy to get trapped by attaching
ourselves to the image of a desired result, or to yesterday's
results. For instance, we might get seduced into thinking that
the relationship we dream of will be more fulfilling than the
moment we have with the people we're with today. Or that last
year's "business failure" still exists in the present
The truth is, everything changes. It always has and it always
will. As with every truth, this can be either good news or bad
news, depending on how you look at it. On the down side, human
minds are probably the hardest, if not the slowest, things to
change on this planet. How many of us have held on to a passing
insult that happened years ago, while we miss the blessings that
are parading before us today? Or how often have we held tightly
to a belief that just isn't working for us?
The good news is, time is always moving. We can't stop
it, try as we might. So if we can embrace it, and move with it,
there exists a constant flow of opportunities for new
beginnings. And we can make new beginnings a choice. If we do,
the past falls away, and we move more fully into the present,
the only place truth really exists.
These thoughts about flowing with
time and regenerating each moment can be useful for us as
individuals and as facilitators helping groups move through the
past, into the present, preparing for the future. Here are some
thoughts about staying in the flow this new year. You might also
try them on groups that are stuck in ineffective thought
- Old ineffective ideas and beliefs can be (must be) replaced
with effective ideas and beliefs. Just a bad meal can be purged
by sending down good healthy, fiber-filled liquids. Look at your
worn out ideas and upgrade them with sparkling new ones you can
be proud to hold, but only for awhile, as these WILL wear out
- Because time is moving and isn't stagnant, we can USE the
present moment to create the next. Ask what your current
actions, behaviors, and beliefs are producing. Do you like the
result? If not, change what you're doing. NOW!
- What feelings are your current activities producing? Your
emotions are the energy of life. They are the motivating force
propelling you into your future. Are they positive and
uplifting? If not, decide what you want to feel, really feel it,
then ask what kind of actions would be necessary to hold them in
- One moment births the next. Your new year will consist of one
"New" moment stacked upon another. Each
"New" moment will seed the next. So plant healthy
seeds and reap the rewards of a happy and healthy New Year!
assignment this week is to forget every aspect of your
personal history that does not uplift you. You are not obligated
to hold onto anything. And forget about making a New Year's
Resolution. Instead, make a resolution to live each moment anew.
Take baby steps and decide what you want to create in this
moment. Forget about future moments. They will take care of
themselves. Please email
us your stories and perspectives. We'd love to get hear from
you! Many Blessings in the year and moment to come!
