We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to life in first place, and then to everybody that makes our life better each day. To you, our family, friends, customers, subscribers and readers, for just being there with us throughout this entire journey together. We wish you a very Happy New Year, surrounded by all the wonderful things that this time of year brings with all the people you love.
Life has given us always much more than we can recognize, and if in 2017 we were given only these three things, we would be more than satisfied.
But the curious thing is that these three things depend more on us than we usually believe. It depends in our state of mind. It depends in how we think and how we react, specially with the nearest ones.
In its' various forms, all of the different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection to pleasure!
Love is natural. Love is free; it cannot be bought, traded or sold.
Love has no borders, no territory, and no quantifiable energy output. It is inherently empathic and compassionate, hence cannot be restrained or manipulated. Since love is its own law, it honors the authority of each soul.
But love is also a direct consequence of what we give. If we plant love, we receive love back in return.
"Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home." Mother Teresa
Pleasure, joy, exhilaration, bliss, contentedness, delight, enjoyment, satisfaction. Happiness, bliss, contentment, felicity... Happiness results from the possession or attainment of what one considers good...
But it is a state of the mind! Happiness is under personal control.
More than simply positive mood, happiness is a state of well-being that encompasses living a good life—that is, with a sense of meaning and deep satisfaction.
Regularly indulging in small pleasures, getting absorbed in challenging activities, setting and meeting goals, maintaining close social ties, and finding purpose beyond oneself are all actions that increase life satisfaction.
"Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present." Jim Rohn
Fullness, plenty, a copious supply and great amount of everything you desire for in all of the aspects of your life for this coming new year 2017.
Abundance is not only the money we have in our bank account, the trophies on our shelf, the letters after our name, the list of goals reached, the number of people we know, our perfect body...
But, living in abundance is something that starts in the inside, and reflects in the outside then!
It is our connection to each breath, how sensitive we are to every flicker of sensation and emotion in the body. It is the delight with which we savour each unique moment, the joy with which we greet each new day. It is knowing ourselves as presence, the power that creates and moves worlds. It is our open heart, how deeply moved we are by love every day, our willingness to embrace, to hold what needs to be held. It is the freshness of each morning unencumbered by memory or false hope.
"Abundance is a process of letting go; that which is empty can receive."Bryant H. McGill
Are we prepared to find Love, happiness and abundance in this 2017?
We wish we are.
Happy New Year to everybody!
