The decade of the 20’s has begun with little fanfare by a society that is eagerly looking forward to the future, and all the possibilities that can exist moving forward. The numbers 2020 for some reason to me at least gives me a sense of peace for reasons I cannot explain. The world we now inhabit has not really changed in the thousands of years of human history that came before us. The attitudes and behaviors of modern society can be justified by our individual DNA profiles. Our life experiences confirms this reality on a daily basis.
The new year always gives one a chance to look forward to the year ahead with a clean slate mentally. This is a once a year gift that a lot of us waste because we a not mentally ready to accept it. The Catholic church has confession clause where you can say I have sinned and be forgiven by a priest on a regular basis, and then you are mentally free to make the same mistakes over and over again.
The bottom line is we all need the use the power of our minds to forgive most importantly ourselves and anyone we believe have may have done us wrong in the past. This a God given power we all possess, and should not waste on trivial matters.
Our lives are all on the count-down clock from the moment of our conception to our eventual demise. That is something we all need to remember on a daily basis.
