Happy New Year 2012!

Happy New Year!  Feliz Nuevo Ano!


We emerged out of the ocean 2.7 billion years ago and to the sea we return.

On the first day of the New Year, millions of Brazilians go to the ocean to offer flowers and shells to the Mother Goddess Yemanja as a way to cleanse and renew oneself for the New Year and remember where we came from so we can better navigate where we are going.

Last night we crossed over into the New Year during our bonfire on the beach where we ignited lanterns of prayers into a Milky Way permeated sky with more stars than Jai says he has ever seen.

Today through the next two weeks (Jan. 1st through Jan. 14th)  is a wonderful period to really embody the spirit of the New Year cycle.  Makar Sankranti on Jan. 14th marks the beginning of the six-month cycle of increasing light till the Summer Solstice.  Where will we be then, individually and collectively and then again when we swing around to the Winter Solstice of 2012?

How we begin the next cycle sets the pulse for the next to unfold. It seems that truly living from one moment to the next, one cycle to the next is more meaningful and practical than ever.

There is magic in the air today. As we head to the sea here in Costa Rica to make our offerings to Yemanja and the sea, I am thinking of you and everyone around the world who is opening to the next cycle.

Let us open to a year of thriving in change and evolving in love, individually and collectively,

Diving into the New,

All Love
