Just a thought...

Spiritually Literate New Year's Resolutions: 

1. I will live in the present moment.  I will not obsess about the past or worry about the future. 

2. I will cultivate the art of making connections.  I will pay attention to how my life is intimately related to all life on the planet. 

3. I will be thankful for all the blessings in my life.  I will spell out my days with a grammar of gratitude. 

4. I will practise hospitality in a world where, too often, strangers are feared, enemies are hated, and the "other" is shunned.  I will welcome guests and alien ideas with graciousness. 

5. I will seek liberty and justice for all.  I will work for a free and a fair world. 

6. I will add to the planet's fund of good will by practising little acts of kindness, brief words of encouragement, and manifold expressions of courtesy. 

7. I will cultivate the skill of deep listening.  I will remember that all things in the world want to be heard, as do the many voices inside me. 

8. I will practise reverence for life by seeing the sacred in, with, and under all things of the world. 

9. I will give up trying to hide, deny, or escape from my imperfections.  I will listen to what my shadow side has to say to me. 

10. I will be willing to learn from the spiritual teachers all around me, however unlikely or unlike me they may be.
