They say New Year's is for setting goals and making resolutions. So, go ahead. Make your Bucket List. Follow your dreams. Create a Vision Board. Success is yours in the near future. The best is yet to come. Someday. This year. Maybe. You can start next Monday – when pigs fly. Or, with the New Moon. Since you’re reading this, TODAY must be your lucky day. You mustn’t forget to check the Chinese Calendar. Wait until the time is right, right? But, there is no right or wrong time. So, all is well. It’s never too late to change. There is still time. There’s no better time than the present (when the stars are aligned). Just don’t get behind the eight ball, or you’ll have to chase that dream farther and faster than ever. And, you will have to wait for the world to change. No big deal. Nobody said it was going to be easy.
Are you confused yet? When it comes to power and success in 2016, I invite you to re-think everything. Everything!Read more

http://www.ted.com As she accepts her 2008 TED Prize, author and scholar Karen Armstrong talks about how the Abrahamic religions -- Islam, Judaism, Christianity -- have been diverted from the moral purpose they share to foster compassion. But Armstrong has seen a yearning to change this fact. People want to be religious, she says; we should act to help make religion a force for harmony. She asks the TED community to help her build a Charter for Compassion -- to help restore the Golden Rule as the central global religious doctrine.
Ready for a more compassionate life? Watch this video and then head over to the Charter for Compassion website and affirm the Charter for yourself. Join thousands of people all over the world who have decided to stand up and make compassion a part of their daily life.
Recently I saw Awake, a documentary about the life of Yogananda who is widely recognized as the Father of Yoga in the West. There’s a scene in the film in which Yogananda poses a question to the audience that impacted me deeply. Noticing how busy Americans were, Yogananda compassionately asked (and I’m paraphrasing here), “When do you have time for bliss?”
I could hear nothing else in the movie for the next few minutes as I pondered this question. Weeks later, it is still on my mind.Read more
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.
We know when we're grasping, gripping tightly, digging in our heels, or clutching something and won't let it go. Why are we holding on so vehemently, and to what? We’re in the midst of unprecedented transformation and miraculous new beginnings on our planet, but we still hold onto our old destructive habits because we’re afraid of what is not familiar. We might fear that we’ll have to give up some conveniences about how we live, even if it’s truly very uncomfortable or unsustainable.
Recently a friend of mine sent me the words of wisdom below that made me laugh:
When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits I dreamed of changing the world. As I grew older and wiser and realized the world would not change I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country: but it too seemed immovable. As I grew into my twilight years I settled on changing only my family and those closest to me, but alas they would have none of it. Now as I lay on my deathbed and I suddenly realize that if I had only changed myself first, then by example I could perhaps have changed my family, and from their inspiration and encouragement to me I would have been better able to help my country and from there I may even have been able to change the world. (said to be Taken from the tomb of a Bishop in Westminster Abbey 1100 A.D. I was unable to verify that).
The words made me laugh because I can remember having that young and free, and might I add naive, imagination.Read more
