I do not believe the world is going to end anytime soon, but I do think we have some world issues that need our full attention.  This is a time when we need to look at our personal energy as if it were money in the bank and ask ourselves “what is the best use of my energy?”

Many of us who see ourselves as people who walk the spiritual path have soft hearts for those with problems, and we do more than our fair share as we try to help our friends through difficulties.  Many of us have also come to the point where we realize that it is a waste of energy to help some people because they are not willing to do their part: they are not willing to make choices to better their lives.

Especially during this time on the earth, it is more important than ever to evaluate how we spend our valuable energy.  With world communications as they are, we are now AWARE of how many starving people there are in the world. We are now AWARE of the problems in our ecological system.   So I ask myself and I ask you to ask yourself: “What is a better use of my energy: to try to keep helping people who are not willing to help themselves, or to spend my time on social projects that help communities who are truly in need?”   “What is a better use of my time: to help a friend who never learns or to help a child with his homework?”  “What is a better use of my time: to argue with people who are not willing to face the ways they are abusing themselves, or to work a few extra hours each week and donate the money to a community that has next to nothing?”   You and I only have so much personal energy.  How are we going to spend this energy?

There comes a point where we cannot help people who are not willing to help themselves. Of course there are exceptions as there are people who are absolutely not capable of helping themselves. But in this instance we are discussing those who CAN help themselves but do not choose to do so.

It becomes a waste of our valuable life energy to continue to spend energy on those who do not receive any benefit from continual attempts to be helpful.

I ask myself again “How am I going to spend my personal energy?” I ask you :How are you going to spend yours?”

Stonehenge

Stonehenge

CAROLE LYNNE IN GLASTONBURY, ENGLAND

Today a man in a coffee house in Glastonbury, England complained about the fact that when you visit Stonehenge, you are not allowed to go near the massive stones.  Years ago, one could walk up to the stones as one would walk into a church or temple.  Now one cannot get near the stones.  This young man said ” They are freezing Stonehenge into the past.  But it is part of the present and they are not letting us use it.”  I tried to reason with him, explaining that the “authorities” are trying to protect an incredible site from vandalism.  Nothing I said mattered and as this young man kept talking, I began to understand what he was saying.

Finally I said “build your own stone circle.”  He laughed and said he did not have the people who could complete such a project.   A cup of coffee later, we agreed that sand mandalas are the best way to go, as you can create these beautiful spiritual expressions and then sweep them away. You do not have to worry about the mortgage, fixing the roof or vandalism.

Our whole conversation left me thinking about how difficult it is for us to maintain all of our spiritual organizations and institutions because we have to cope with politics, maintaining buildings, staff, boards of directors, etc — etc — etc!    If I create a beautiful picture or image out of sand, it can be blown or swept away, but the experience I have while creating the picture will always be with me.

It IS great to see Stonehenge, but something IS lost as it has become a tourist site.  It is frozen in time as the young man commented. BUT still very impressive and beautiful.  Ice sculptures anyone?

Dear Friends,

Here is a great post from Brian Vaszily. I found this on www.intent.com and Brian gave me permission to post his article. I know that his ideas will help you to make the most of the past year and the next year.

TRY THIS AMAZING EXPERIENCE TO MAKE YOUR NEW YEAR HAPPY by Brian Vastly

The past is good for two things: the happy memories, and the lessons it provides. That is why as each year ends I partake in an intense experience that focuses on these values, creates an important sense of closure and helps greatly to ensure a happy New Year.

To embrace what is worthwhile from the previous year and leave the rest behind you – instead of holding onto grudges and regrets, as so many unfortunately do much to the detriment of their emotional and physical health – and to ensure your New Year is happy, I encourage you to try this experience.  And to share it with those you love.

Take some time to ponder and create two lists:

One, your The Top Five Most Important Lessons You Learned in the Year.

And two, your Top Five Favorite Memories of the Year.

Now before you race off to do this, read the rest of this short article. It provides important perspective on doing this.

First and foremost, remember that the key aspect of this intense experience is to “take some time to ponder” it.

In today’s go-go faster-faster world, you may be tempted to rush through this experience, to treat it like another task to get off your to-do list.

But you just invested 8760 or so hours of your life in the previous year. To pull what is worth pulling from it, to give it proper perspective and proper closure, it surely deserves some of your focused conscious energy.

Remember the Wisdom of a Child

Maybe you lost half your investments this year. Or your job. Or your house. Or you faced health challenges. Or worse.

Well, you have two options:

One, dwell on the negative, self-defeating questions like “How could I be so stupid?” or “How could God let this happen to me?”

Those are not really questions but unchecked emotional responses that will only drive your spirit, health, relationships and more into the ground.

Your other option is to ponder what positive lessons you were graced with from whatever you experienced in the year. And to be thankful for them, as you have the gift of life and consciousness and therefore the ability to do something with those lessons.

For example, I personally went through some very painful relationship experiences and business experiences this past year. I could choose to beat myself up over them, or point the finger at others and say, “How could you?” I could choose to drown in the pain.

But a child doesn’t touch fire, get burned, and then spend the rest of his days – or even hours – lamenting how this could have happened to him. He learns not to touch the fire and twenty minutes later he is happily playing again.

In this past year two of the things I learned, or learned even more, are that:

No matter how much you have invested, sometimes the healthiest thing you can do is let go.

Deep love is hard work. And worth every ounce of it.


So, whether from challenging experiences or wonderful experiences, what top five lessons did you learn from the previous year?

Don’t Bang on the Beehive

To focus on your top five (or ten, or twenty) favorite memories of the year likely seems like good advice, but not profound advice.

But as with so many sensible actions, what seems so obvious when anyone thinks about it is unfortunately not what many people tend to do.

Instead, for example, when discussing the past year I have already heard so many people stating how bad it was. I hear them recalling all the bad memories.

This follows so many people’s tendency to dwell on what is wrong, what they don’t have, what they lack.

And this is as dangerous and unhealthy as it gets. It is like banging on a beehive.

Because here is a universal law: whatever you seek, you will find plenty of.

If you are focused on bad memories, problems, and things to complain about, you will most certainly find them. They will swarm your mind, your heart, and sting your life.

Likewise, if you are focused on good memories, the beauty in the world, and things to feel grateful for, you will most certainly find them too. They will nourish your mind, your heart, and allow your life to blossom.

So what are your top five favorite memories of the past year? What are the most important lessons you learned from the year?

Put them out there, and put your gratitude for them out there, for the world, for the universe, for God to hear.

Share them with your family, and pass this article on to those you care about and ask them to share theirs with you.

What you put out, after all, is what you get back. And that will make for a very Happy New Year for you…
