New Year - New Vision

Over the past 10 days, I've been testing the theory that right now is an ideal time to be open to new possibilities and ways of doing things. And sure enough, a flood of creative ideas have been coming through. In fact, I can't remember starting a year and getting such a big jump on personal goal setting. 

What's making the difference this particular January?  For one thing, the winter weather has called on many of us to be creatively flexible — that's certainly true for our Unity staff and volunteers who've done a wonderful job adjusting on behalf of our community. For myself, being bound by ice and snow has caused me to slow down and see my environment in new ways. I've learned, for instance, that the world appears somewhat different when giving a Sunday talk in my bathrobe! Also, with our January theme of "Planting Seeds for the New Year," I've felt the need to walk my talk – something I can always be more mindful about.

Perhaps my creative jumpstart can be attributed to the Unity principle that divine imagination is always waiting to shine through us, assisted by our spiritual practices and conscious intention.  But I think it's also true that "there is a season" – along with waves and cycles – for how life unfolds.  This means there are windows of opportunity, times when it's especially ideal to plant our seeds of intention.  So if you haven't already, I invite you to take seriously the idea that a door is open for you now – perhaps as never before – a doorway to higher ground for your mind, body and spirit.  And if that door is truly open, the only thing left is for each of us to be truly open to it.

In oneness,

Jon
