The world has changed chronologically into the Year 2021. Beyond a change in the calendar, any change we may or may not feel in this new year is up to us. A new year isn’t magic. Change is always up to us. 2021 is only separated from last year by one little old number. But how we feel about that number can be important because if we feel positive when we write it, each time we write it, the writing of it will subconsciously raise our mental-emotion vibration. Have we started looking at the number 2021 to try to get a feel for it? If so, you might have noticed that it certainly doesn’t look as symmetrically pleasing as the number 2020. It seems to abruptly stop at the number one rather than flowing round and round like those two nice zeros did last year. 2020 appeared to be so balanced, which goes to show we can’t judge anything according to appearances!

A colleague found a way to enjoy writing the year 2021. He said, “Remember the One in 2021.” It seems a wonderful way to embrace this year’s designated number more spiritually, to focus on that attention-getting “one” in the number 2021 and use it as a reminder of the One we truly are, and as a symbol of encouragement to express our self in a new, more spiritually powerful way this year. We can also let it to remind us of One we are together, the people of Earth created to create together all that is beautiful, good and holy from the Love that joins us as One. Love inspires and  guides us into kinder, more compassionate thoughts, words and actions toward each other and the Earth, Itself. We’re only going be able to live together in peace and harmony by freeing our self from the fear of loving each other as fully as we can. Not everyone will love us back, but that’s not the point. The spiritual teacher, Osho, said, “Love is born with you; it is your intrinsic quality. All that is needed is to give it a way, to make a passage for it, to let it flow.” Even though a new year isn’t magic, it does offer a symbol of newness, blank pages, as many have said, upon which we have the opportunity to write a whole new chapter in our life. Why rewrite yesterday’s chapters when we can decide this is going to be our best year yet? And, since it’s the only year we have to work with, we might as well decide it’s going to be.

How are you feeling about what you’ve written so far in your Book of Life on Earth for this yea? Even though there are just a few pages so far, are they filled with happy, enthusiastic ideas of what this year may become for you? Or are they simply filled with thoughts of relief that 2020 is finally over! We can all be of good cheer that we survived the year, but we’re created to thrive, not just survive. It’s not powerful enough to create something new simply by saying, “Praise Lord and alleluia, things could have been worse in 2020.” Thoughts of having been fortunate enough to have flown under the radar of impending disease and doom, and ideas based on self-protection and just getting through don’t carry the powerful high vibrations that create joyously new experiences for us. The word “Alleluia” carries a high vibration because it means “a song of praise to God.” And, since God is Love, Alleluia also means a song of praise to Love. We could say Alleluia is a Love Song.

A friend said the other day, “My resolution this year is not to make any resolutions, but instead to go withe the flow and make good choices that are in alignment with Love.” Every time we choose not to judge, we are in alignment with Love. Every time we choose to forgive, we are in alignment with Love. Every time we choose kindness, helpfulness, compassion, and understanding, we are in alignment with Love. Every time we make good choices that are in alignment with Love, since there is no higher vibration in the Universe than Love, we raise our praise to God and meet God’s Love for us and all of creation. In The Way of the Heart we read, “You are here to remember that you are the thought of Love in form. You are here to remember that you are one with God, that God is the source of your reality.” Love is the most powerful vibration in the Universe. It makes the world go round because Love made world and us in it.

The attraction-action the Law of Attraction that governs the Universe in which live, and therefore governs us too, is all about vibration. Everything within the Universe, and everything within us and every being, is vibrational. Our thoughts, ideas, moods, and attitudes carry a vibration, and we draw to us whatever vibration matches ours, whether we want to or not. We could say that every moment of everyday we’re singing some kind of song because the vibrations of our thoughts are like notes we’re sending out into the Universe. Is what we’re sending out in harmony with the Universal Love Song? It’s important to ask our self: “Are my thoughts a song of praise to God or am I singing the proverbial ‘someone done me wrong’ song? Do I have tears in my eyes because my heart overflows with tenderness for all that lives?” Or, to paraphrase a Country song, “Do I have tears in my ears from lying on my back crying over how life mistreats me.”

We can change our tune anytime we choose to, and the good news is we don’t need to go back and release each and every little thing we were displeased about last year in order to raise our praise to the vibrational elevation of positive energy that will help us create something beautifully new in 2021. We can decide to let our displeasure fade away as we focus on all we want to draw to us in this brand new year. Abraham-Hicks reminds us, “If you will take the time to line up your energy, to attune your vibration with the vibration of your desire, nothing can keep it from coming to you.” If we’re finding that this year hasn’t budged an inch as far as change goes, if this year is feeling like “deja vu all over again,” and if we’d like to do something about it so that we can draw something new to us, we need to raise the vibration of our thoughts in praise of our desires. It’s essential for us to begin to love and nurture who we truly desire to be, and decide to be that no matter what’s going on around us. In this way, who we are internally aligned with how we express our self socially. We’re no longer faking it. We feel the bliss of living as our authentic self in the world.

If we choose to praise the good we find in our mind by focusing on it, and sing a love song to the Universe, we will draw our good to us externally. Abraham-Hicks tells us, “It doesn’t matter if you had a negative thought a million times. It’s not going to affect you now unless you think it again. You don’t have to undo those thoughts, you just have to break the pattern of those thoughts.”
There is a blessing in every moment, and we’ll find one if we make it a habit to look for one. Some blessings may be wearing scary disguises, but we don’t need to go back and unmask them in order to be blessed by them. Unseen blessings, when we accept that they are there, bless us just the same. If choose to be grateful for it all, without needing to name names, our vibration will naturally rise to a song of praise to God and all that Love has created.

There is no such thing as a little bit of Love and a lot of Love, anymore than there can be a little bit of God and a lot of God. We can’t be free to be the Love we are if we only love some things, because God is everything. It is going to be up to you and me to internally become the change we want to see externally in the new year. Because if we don’t bring it with us in our mind and heart, if we don’t break the pattern of our negative thoughts, all that will change for us this year is the calendar. And, no matter how much we enjoy writing 2021, it won’t be enough to make all things new. Every moment of this year, no matter how it appears be, will give us an opportunity to make good choices that are in alignment with Love. If we let it, every moment will allow us to experience our freedom to love—no matter who, no matter what—fearlessly and without conditions. Lenape Indian Chief Two Eagles said, “So you want to learn how to Love? It’s easy. Throw some seeds in a field. If the birds eat them, that’s Love. If plants grow to feed you, that’s Love. Your job is merely to love enough to throw the seeds. The outcome is none of your concern.” Let us choose to be the One in the Year 2021 that decides to throw seeds of Love wherever we go.
