Welcome to 2020 The Start of a Special Decade
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and NYE celebrations? And the start of 2020 finds you all well.
In keeping with the theme of my last post: love … I would like to start with the idea that 2020 is going to be the year that we start to see “love in action” more in the world and more in our lives. But like all things in our Universe if we want to see this, we have to first BE IT. So as per my Christmas post, becoming more loving, expanding our love and expressing love is as always the key to experiencing a more loving world.
But even more so than this (yes! MORE!) 2020 is about CHOICE.
We have to start choosing LOVE.
Keep choosing LOVE and yes of course, keep being LOVE.
There are a number of themes for 2020 which began at the end of 2019 and will become even stronger in 2020 and if I had to sum them up in one word it would CHOICE.
The other themes that all related to choice in 2020 are Strength (inner and outer), Integrity and of course Love.
You may have already started to experience these themes because they have come up a lot in relationships especially at the end of 2019. But these themes are also prevalent in the areas of work, purpose and health.
I could talk on this subject all night! But I’ll try not to – suffice to say that we are all being asked to make a CHOICE and yes, in many cases this means that this choice challenges our integrity and our personal strength. But, the way I look at it is that it’s not so much a “test from the Universe” to see if you make a “good or bad” choice. Nor is it a test of whether you care about your relationship, your career, your health or the planet,… this is might what it looks like on the surface – but this year it’s not about the smaller details of your life, it’s more about where you stand on the choice of LOVE or FEAR.
You’re being asked to choose. You’re being asked to not only say you choose it, but prove that you choose it through your actions. If you choose love – the Universe is asking you to SHOW that’s your choice.
TO COMMIT to your CHOICE OF LOVE
I have never in my lifetime seen such a turning point for humanity where the line has been drawn so clearly. We are being asked this year to choose: which will guide not just our actions, but our destiny.
And if you choose LOVE… then you’re going to need to take action.
LOVE in ACTION
So whether it be our global destiny or our personal destiny – the choice is the same.
If you want to regain your health you have to CHOOSE LOVE of SELF every single day. You have to love your life and love yourself even if you feel hopelessly flawed, it’s even more important to choose love every single day through what you say to yourself, how you spend your time and with whom.
If you want to regain or create a loving relationship, you have to CHOOSE LOVE of SELF AND OTHERS every single day. You have to commit to the foundation of love which is acceptance. Choose to accept yourself and your partner as they are …not as you wish them to be .. and watch as love thrives.
If you want to succeed in your work, you have to CHOOSE LOVE of SELF in ways that you have not done before – for some that means committing to and doing more, for others it means committing to and doing less (and yes, less is as productive as more, when the balance is right). You have to commit to what you are passionate about, become even more passionate about what you love and share that love with more and more people. That’s the true nature of success – sharing what you love.
If you want to do right by the planet and all of life on Earth, you have to CHOOSE LOVE OF ALL.
Not love of SOME. LOVE OF ALL. This is Unity Consciousness and the more of us who can shift into this level of consciousness the sooner we will find the solutions to our global ills.
(N.B – I’ve separated these all out above, but I hope you can tell that each carries the truth for all interconnected areas of life)
All of these choices, involve taking committed loving action. All of these choices are not going to be easy (we’re out of practice, I know) and yes they are going to make you uncomfortable at times, they are going to change who you are, what you do, how you show up in the world and yes, they are going to involve at points maybe a bit of personal pain, maybe financial sacrifice and yes maybe temporary personal sacrifice (but only from the life you used to feel comfortable with). But, the reward for choosing love? I don’t think I need to say it right? OK you twisted my arm.. it’s it’s own reward. But in the decade beginning 2020, it’s not just you personally who will be rewarded, it’s life as we know it.
I started this email by saying that it’s the start of a Special Decade… and I meant it. There is a choice ahead for all of us. You don’t have to be a climate activist to know that great suffering is coming for many, but as Eckhart Tolle says, “Pain is inevitable, Suffering is optional.”
There is always a choice.
It might not be an easy choice.
It might not be a comfortable choice.
Hell you might even resent the choices! But still… there is always a choice.
So, it’s over to you…. What do you choose for 2020 and the decade to come?
It’s a simple choice when you know the answer though eh?
