I’ve been trying to construct an appropriate holiday message. While the accepted thing is to garner a wish of Happy Holidays, it doesn’t fit my desire. I want something deeper and spiritual and more meaningful. One thing that has surprised me about readers of my blog is that you come from so many diverse backgrounds. You are Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Christian, Bahia, Buddhist, agnostic, and more. You are from France, Romania, Finland, Pakistan, Belgium, South Africa, Australia, Switzerland, England, Ireland, India, Canada, the U.S.A. and others. I love our differences and it causes one message to resonate with me in particular.
My year of blogging has exposed me to so much and I am thankful to each one of you for your comments, your questions and for challenging me in new directions. My beliefs are stronger because of you.
I believe we need to be stewards of this beautiful planet.
I believe that we have the capacity to create health and heal ourselves through our prayers and the foods we eat.
I believe we need to teach ourselves and each other to have discussions because
I believe that now more than ever we have a need for civil discourse.
I believe sustainable living is possible even though it is not always easy.
I believe that education is the great equalizer.
I believe we need to work to eradicate poverty and that if we do,
I believe Peace is possible and that is my wish for all of you.
