“Hey ya, hey ya, …right here folks. Get your 2018 Predictions…hot off the psychic!”
Might be funny if it weren’t so true that folks are looking for what the future holds for everyone in general, but especially what the future holds for them personally.
I know. I’ve listened to my favorite astrologer predicting that 2018 will look a whole lot like 2017 in terms of chaos and uncertainty. But he seems to think that we, as a collective consciousness, are “birthing” something new—a NEW perspective—a NEW attitude—a NEW enlightened state of being.
I hope he’s right. That would be nice.
It would be nice if it means that people will stop being so cruel to each other—stop being so greedy and selfish.
But as I imagine, that wish is more along the lines of what His Holiness the Dalai Lama said awhile back when asked about ‘praying for peace’, something to the effect that ‘Praying is nice but it won’t change anything because it isn’t GOD that is creating the problem here—it is people creating the problem; and people have to want to change for the better. So take responsibility for your role in all the chaos and violence—be more loving toward others and be at peace to spread peace.’
So with that thought in mind, my prediction for the New Year of 2018 is that this ONE person of ME, will try to do that very thing: To be more loving toward others, and to be at peace to spread peace.
Let’s make 2018 the year that it all turned around for the better.
Yeah! No matter how improbable that might be—let’s do it!
