A reflection

The first day of the year began in Southern Ontario with an abundant snowfall, followed by dropping temperatures promising a frigid first week of January.

This was a great day for reviewing plans and setting out goals for the next twelve months.

The New Year's Day church service focused on the idea of peace, and I noted the intersection point between all the major religions: peace is rooted in acceptance and living in the present; not re-living the problems of the past and not worrying about the future. If we focus on the present and fully absorb its essence, not allowing the mind to run wild, we might find peace.

Something to try this year.
