“Constantly focusing on the limitations, instead of all the possibilities, is how people become stuck in their lives. It only serves to recreate the same old reality from day to day. And soon the days turn into years, and lifetimes.” – Anthon St. Maarten

Glorious, gleeful 2023 to all you amazing, wonderful people.

You might have noticed I didn’t write a rah-rah, make this your best year ever post. Making solemn resolutions to grab 2023 by the kahunas, to my way of thinking, just generates a bunch of pressure I don’t need. Besides, life is already pretty incredible just as it is. To quote the wise sage Ferris Bueller, “If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

In other words, my resolution, the same as last year and the year before that, is “to keep my eye on the ball.” And by that I mean to just be aware of whatever happens to be thrown my way.  

I’m not particularly interested in orchestrating or curating life to my liking. I just want to stop and look around and really appreciate that, for whatever reason, I have been given this rare opportunity to be here and witness this unbelievable cosmic dance.

I’m presently in Mumbai, about to fly to Ahmedabad where I’ve been invited to participate in a Moved By Love retreat at Gandhi’s ashram.  There’s no set  agenda—just a bunch of folks getting together to “look around” and see what life is offering next.

So even though you may not get any love notes from me in the next couple weeks (that’s what these posts are, you know?), I’m sure you’ll feel the universal vibration we will be sending out.

The photo is yours truly last time I was in India and below is a video from a former MTV rap star who will also be here at the conference.

Keep looking around, my friends, and know that every single day is a gift. #222 Forever!
