Taking A Day To Rest & Reflect

10 Sep

As always, we take September 11th off as a day of rest and reflection. There is such sadness in the world right now and so much doesn’t make sense. So perhaps today we can take a moment to think of the things that make life worth living: our friends & family, nature, animals, football, ice cream, great music, laughter, art, Sergio’s fashion choices – whatever gives you joy.  Then take those feeling of happiness and contentment and send them out into the universe and let’s hope the subsequent outpouring of love works some healing mojo on the world. It need all the positivity that we can generate. And while you are at it, please find ways to be kind to each other, no matter how small or simple. We need that too. I do believe things can get better – I have to believe that – but I also believe that we have to be active participants in making it happen. So please do whatever you can – march, donate, volunteer, adopt earth-friendly behaviors, protect the vulnerable, practice random acts of loving-kindness, send good energy, pray, mediate – it all helps.

Peace,
Lozil

Time For Reflection

10 Sep

As always, we take a day off from posting on September 11th to reflect. In my country right now, each day brings a new disgrace, more division and fear for the future. While there is much to be ashamed about, there are also wonderful, strong people willing to take a stand. I’m sending them as much good energy as I can so they can continue to affect change. And I’m doing my part too in a variety of ways. We all need to.  Now more than ever, let’s send a wish out to the universe for peace, a return to civility and positive energy to a world sorely in need of it.

Sending A Wish Out To The Universe

With all the sadness and pain going on in the world, it never hurts to take a moment to think and send a wish for love and light into the universe. I hope that you will join me in doing just that.

Let’s all take a moment to send some peaceful thoughts out to a world that sorely needs it and also take a bit of time to reflect on our blessings. We’ll see you all again on Saturday.
