A timeless invitation for 2015

I send greetings and love as a New Year dawns and wish for you what I wish for myself -- that you may be at peace and unafraid in the midst of whatever joys and perils lie ahead.

Is this possible? Is this actually possible in such unpredictable times?

It is possible, I believe, if I am willing to meet two essential requirements.

I must long with all the passion that is in me for a deeper experience of the peace and courage of my true nature and the love at the core of my being that casts out all fear.

And I must be willing to change, and change, and then change some more.

God -- the eternal love at the core of our own being -- is not mocking us or punishing us in these difficult times. Nor have we been deserted.

As 2015 dawns, life presents us with a timeless invitation: to be at peace and unafraid.

Thank you for your sweet and challenging posts. I recently moved to Bend, OR at the request of a son who lived here. He has just moved to Colorado and I am sitting here with my head spinning and my heart filled with questions…namely, “What the heck?”
Loving the freedom to change and the passion for the depth of my true self, I still feel like I’ve got one foot on the dock and one on the boat. Winter is providing such an opportunity for deep resonance with spirit which will direct me when it’s ready. Until then, I’m spending time with myself, with friends, and with my doggies in the beauty of this natural world that is Central Oregon. Grateful for all of it, but mostly for a friend who taught me to say, “We’ll see”.

It’s good to hear from you, Elizabeth. We’ve had some adventures, haven’t we, since life first got us connected. You’re right, absolutely right. As we are still and listen the next step always appears. It “emerges,” as my Dad liked to say.

So be patient, dear friend. With blessings and love from your friend Chris.

Thank you Christopher,
You have made an impact on all of those that have been on similar journeys, as well as opened the door to many others finding their way. The peace within is our strength, the love of humanity is our guide, and the love of all living creatures is our hope.
Not a day goes by that I don’t find beauty, hear the music of life, and know the ultimate gratitude for my own life, as I follow the paths of my journey. Keeping you close.
Marisa

Dear Llynde,

Your words, along with a number of other very touching and moving comments, are most meaningful and poignant for me. They make me sit up, so to speak, and get still, and really pay attention to what you and others have said.

I have felt ambivalent at times about my blog, especially the past year, partly because the kind of writing I do at the happy seeker doesn’t have a “material” value and therefore doesn’t bring me any financial return. And so I have wondered, at times, if I should stop blogging and focus on endeavors that do have the potential to bring in some income for my wife and me.

But I’m thinking that perhaps there is a “middle way,” at least for the forseable future, where I continue to write a new blog post every 3-4 weeks, let’s say, while focusing most of my energy and time on writing short non-fiction ebooks which I hope will bring a cash return.

I’m very grateful indeed for your comment and the other very kind comments which help me bring a little more clarity into my situation. It’s a privilege to be on this journey together and it will be fun to see what the New Year has in store for us. My love to you Llynde.
