Chinese New Year

 

February is a month of celebration. On Valentine’s Day, we celebrate Love in its full splendor. Today, we celebrate the Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the Goat (also known as the Ram or Sheep).

 

The significance of this year is about how we celebrate the strength we achieve by working together. The Sheep reflects our natural state of peace and togetherness. In today’s world, it’s easy to feel separate in the hustle of our daily lives, bombarded by media and technology. Taking a moment to reflect on our blessings and recognizing we are all connected is the theme of this year. It is up to each individual to create this feeling of “us”. By taking responsibility for everything and sharing that responsibility with everyone, we become the solution and OUR success is connected to the whole process. It takes strength from others to support us on our path. Compassion for all and acceptance will pull us back from judgment and bring great joy. Take a moment to be kind to yourself and to other during this year of the goat and you will gain the rewards of a truly rich life.
