It is that time of year, when we tend to intend to much. Christmas is a bell ringer for the next major event, the new year. Every new year, we feel the need for a clean slate, for putting the present year behind us and planning for a better new one. With the great myriad of forces criss crossing our planet, we feel so driven to fill up our sometimes unrealistic ‘to do list’ and ‘to be better list’ with full confidence that we will fulfill our intentions. Because of our eager wish to control the events of the year to come, we forget to leave room for the unknown, for the future that is trying to happen and for the mystery that lies ahead.
So for this year, I will leave a big chunk of empty space on my diary page of new year resolutions and a great big welcome to all that is coming from and leading us to elsewhere.
