Cheers to another year on this planet as a contemplative being!
One can go through life on instinct, experiencing every moment for the pure experience of it without second guessing the ethical underpinnings or implications.
One can rely on fixed dogma to determine what has value to avoid a life of ambiguity and confusion.
One can examine mindfully ones choices infused with the spectrum of human emotion, yet always questioning both means and ends toward improving the world.
On this day and every day taking the time to be thankful can be part of a joyful feedback loop that celebrates the awareness of being everywhere and an appreciation the amazing, external world.
