“Willingness to become as a little child and to leave the old for the new, renders thought receptive of the advanced idea. Gladness to leave the false landmarks and joy to see them disappear, — this disposition helps to precipitate the ultimate harmony.” (Science and Health, page 323)
We are about to embark on a new year. Why not make a conscious decision to show up in our tomorrow in a way that is ready to bless and be blessed?
We can prepare for the new year by leaving behind what is not serving us, what isn’t providing us with the true freedom, progress, and joy we have a right to experience. The ultimate harmony is not something out of reach for us, but if we expect to carry our baggage, our limits, our regrets with us, we’ll miss what the new day is promising for us.
Our resolution can be the choice to put on a new perspective. It isn’t about making willful goals to do this or not do that. It’s about being willing. We can be like little children, ready to head out onto the playground, leaving the old toys behind, eager to see what’s in store.
We can do our best to gladly, joyfully, gratefully, let go of those past worries and guilts and fears, as well as those looming human expectations. Let’s be open to the fresh, the happy, the inspired, advanced, progressive idea. Let’s be willing to learn something new, to give up the need to be wise or to hang on to cynicism and doubt like a weighty badge of honor.
Take this moment to prepare to be surprised by something wonderful and right and new!
