Barbara's Blurb for January 7, 2015

by Barbara Libby


I’m not one to make New Year’s Resolutions – never have and probably never will.   But the turning of the clock into a New Year always offers us a doorway into a new beginning and an opportunity to reflect on where we’ve been in the year past… In a recent Facebook post from On Being, one of their regular contributors, Parker Palmer offered these five questions to ponder for the New Year. These questions resonate with me and so I share them with all of you – post these questions by your computer, your refrigerator, or wherever you take your morning coffee. Take some time, once a day or even once a week perhaps, to ponder on these questions… See what happens!

  1. How can I let go of my need for fixed answers in favor of aliveness?
  2. What is my next challenge in daring to be human?
  3. How can I open myself to the beauty of nature and human nature?
  4. Who or what do I need to learn to love next? And next? And next?
  5. What is the new creation that wants to be born in and through me?
And Blessings for this New Year – full of possibility and promise…
