We enter the New Year with vigor and excitement, but remember that Living Skillfully demands shifting perspective and following flow. The very time of year that is filled with guests, constant movement and chaos is closely followed by a time of silence and stillness. Try to place as much joy and comfort in the silence as you did during the hustle and bustle of the holidays from the season passed; despite the fact that our conditioned response hurries us to take charge and shift our gears into drive. The season ahead is actually guiding us to slow down. Allow the car of life to be placed in neutral and then, when you feel comfortable in neutral, shift over to park.
Indeed, in many cultures the Full Moon after the Winter Solstice is referred to as the Quiet Moon. Now is the time to slow down and enjoy some quiet time.
