Centering in the New Year

      Well, here we are into the first week of the new year.  And how are you doing on keeping your new year's resolutions?  I gave up on making them years ago -- I couldn't stand being disappointed in myself.

     But here's a new year's resolution I'd like to recommend for all of us.  It doesn't involve deprivation, expensive equipment, or sweat.  It will probably even make your life run more smoothly with less drama.

     And that is -- come back to the center.  Every day.  

     Picture if you will a tennis player near the back line and her opponent is lobbing side shots so the tennis player is running from side to side.  Does she stay on one side only?  No, she doesn't know where the next shot might land, so she comes back to the center after every shot.

     Similarly, we are fifth-dimensional beings working in a 3D world.  We never know what life will bring us.  But rather than keeping our energy in the craziness and busyness of the 3D world, we need to come back to the center.

     How do we come back to the center? you ask.  Through a regular practice of meditation and some spiritual reading if you can.  We need to come back to our center, which is a spiritual being connected to the Source.  If we do that, we can better face what comes our way.  Try it.  Every day.  That's a habit worth the effort.
