Happy New Year
It means gates and doors and symbolizes openings or beginnings and good endings.

2010!!! A new decade begins!!! I was saying to hubby last night that it feels like we just began the new millenium, and here we are, ten years into it. Gosh, who could forget when 2000 was about to roll in....the widespread belief that disaster was about to hit, that the computers were all about to crash and the mad scramble to fix all the computers before the bewitching hour fell....And after all that, nothing happened. The year rolled in just like any other year.
Now, 2010 rolls in, and 2012 is on many people's minds. With the Mayan calendar set to end on 12/21/12, many feel the end of the world is near...but what they don't know that we have faced the end of the world many times...and we are all still here. For example, according to a Divine message discovered in The Great Pyramid, the world was supposed to end August, 1953 or the prophecy that in 1988 World War III would break out. Edgar Cayce predicted the earth would shift in 1997-1998. Armageddon was supposed to start December 12, 2001. I could go on and on, but once again I have totally veered off what I wanted to say today.
Gosh, here it is the first day of the new year and I go off on a doomsday tirade. But the truth is and I guess what I was trying to say before I got so sidetracked is this: Life is a precious gift to be lived to the fullest. It is an unhappy person who dwells on what 'might be' and the human fear of the unknown rather than embracing the opportunity of entering into a new era full of possibilities. When we obsess on the negative, we lose the wonder and magic. Change is a part of life, one of the mysteries of life that sets our wheels spinning, but transformation can be a wonderful process if we do not let our minds get in the way. When we embrace change as a part of growth, it can be exciting and joyful. We can then continue to feel our emotions and release our fears.
May this coming year be one when we usher in a world of peace, love, and hope for the future of humanity...a world where we become one with our brothers. Happy New Year.
