There is no obstacle that can’t be overcome.
There is no problem without a solution.
I will not be diminished by my circumstances.
As frustrating as roadblocks in life can be, there are none that can’t be overcome. If met with an obstacle in our path we can look for ways around, over, or even under it. If still no solution is apparent, we can seek Divine guidance and trust that a way to handle the situation will reveal itself. Most of the time we don’t really need to rush to find an answer – though we might think we do – and forcing one is rarely helpful in the long-term . Remember, if we worry or fight against a problem we only create resistance to finding a positive outcome but if we can approach it with an empowered and calm surety we create an opening for a solution to be known and a way forward to be shown.

I respect the choices of others and ask the same of them.
I walk the path to wholeness that is right for me.
There are as many spiritual paths as there are travelers. No singular way can be right for every person- each heart and every soul are in search of their own unique home. Buddhism, Judaism, Muslim, Shinto, Gnosticism, New Age Spirituality, Wicca, and the thousands of other paths to wholeness, each hold merit for the one who has chosen it. It is important to follow the road (or roads) that meet the needs of your inner being, regardless of the opinions of others. It is equally important that we ask that our choices be respected. And, just as we ourselves ask for respect, so too must we respect the way of others. On this day, as many choose to honor one of the world’s great teachers-Yeshua ben Joseph /Jesus- we can appreciate his messages of loving respect and tolerance “Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7:1). And, “And as you would have that men should treat you, treat them likewise.” (Luke 6:31). And, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39)

I will eat one meal with complete mindfulness.
There are Buddhist monks and other practitioners who use eating as an opportunity to practice mindfulness. What that means is that while they are eating they are eating. That is– they are ONLY eating. They do not talk during meals and their every movement and every thought is related to the meal and eating.
Their thoughts are of gratitude for the grain which gave up its life force and the many hands that saw it go from cultivation to consumption. They view eating as a divine marriage between the food and the one eating it. They reflect with awe and humility on the perfection of the body as it takes part in the meal. Hands that take food from bowl to mouth, a sense of taste that recognizes the earthy flavor, a digestive system that turns a grain of rice into sustenance, all parts in the process are acknowledged and honoured. They feel, taste, smell, appreciate, unite, and fully engage in what becomes a sacred communion. I, on the other hand, have actually eaten so fast and so absent-mindedly that I’ve not remembered eating at all. I like the idea of consciously becoming one with my food. I especially like the idea of being fully present in the act of eating and appreciating the many, many who have made it possible. So today, even if it means eating in the closet or the garage so that I’m not disturbed, I’ll eat one meal with the divine grace of a monk.
