Topic: Making Changes
The breaking news, at this very moment, is that they've reached a last-minute deal in Washington! Like all New Years Eve promises, we'll have to wait and see if it's worth the paper it's written on.
Seems to me that most resolutions just scratch the surface. They center on things external, without the revolutionary changes we need to make if we are going to see personal transformation.
I just get sick at heart every year when "turning over a new leaf" seems to be no more than going to the gym and pushing back from the table more. Not that these aren't important. They are VITALLY important for the physical well-being of our ailing population. We are killing ourselves by not doing the basic self-care that used to be so much easier in leaner times when most of us earned our living by the sweat of the brow.
If we are to cease colluding with evil, we must break habits in our thinking that keep us stopping short of taking responsible actions on matters even more important than the superficial resolutions that keep us locked in nothing more than gazing at our own spiritual navels. Or getting to the point we can even see them.
