Did you spend some time yesterday deciding what you want in the new year? We must be specific, you know. Write down a few things that you really would like to manifest and create this coming year.
Now why do you want that? Really think about that.
I wanted to go back to school. Teaching license, free school, four years, guaranteed job. I could homeschool Maryjane and make a difference in children’s lives. Great, but why? Out of fear. I read an article (click here to read) about a young woman who chose to plant corn over going to Harvard. The simple ways of life have gone away with the idea that the corporate and socialized world is the only the way to survive. When really taking care of the Earth and those around us is a far more valiant task. I wanted to school because I am afraid of remaining poor. I do not want to work in a common core setting or even for someone else. As my shop gathers speed I look around and see that my place in among my herbs, my plants, my community, my garden, and encouraging everyone I encounter.
What I really want to manifest is a farm. If my shop could manifest itself out of nothing in a just a few weeks, couldn’t a farm do the same thing?
Do you want to manifest something because your peers expect you to? because someone wants you to? Do you have a passion for what you are manifesting? If you can talk about it with a smile on your face and a can’t wait attitude then write it on the resolutions sheet. We’re going to make some great things happen this year. I want to plant corn.
