The desire to shape this future, or at least to think it out, is admittedly strong. I want to start setting out particular goals. I want to start actively moving toward something more ambitious than my degree, my practice. There are these things, to be sure, and while they feel right, even necessary, they don't quite feel sufficient. I'm hungry for more, but I'm worried only that I have no idea as to the scope of this call. What specific goals do I set? What do I look for?
The Hopi Elders this year asked us all to respond to some basic questions that i am using for my own set of "whereas, be it resolved" goals.
Where are you living in body and mind?
Are you in your body, attuned with it, and are you healthy?
Is your mind focused living in the now?
Are you paying attention to the world around you?
What are you doing in your life to fulfill your spirit?
Are you seeking hope, joy, and peace?
Are you loving one another?
From what watershed does your water spring forth?
Is your water safe and clear?
Do you keep your watershed clean?
Do you keep the watershed of others clean?
Are you right in all your relationships with all your relations?
Is your family healthy?
Are your loved ones safe and hope filled?
