There are two questions, according to Harold Thurman, Harvard prof of Psychology:
1. Where am I going?
2. Who will go with me?
He says if we get them in the wrong order, we're in trouble. I've had them in the wrong order for my whole adult life. I'm not blaming myself for that; given my upbringing and the culture I grew up in, I didn't stand a chance of getting it right. But now. Now I get to go back to Question #1 and ask and have it answered. And in answering it, I will find my Sacred Contract - the purpose for which I was put on this earth in this particular place, in this particular time.
There are no coincidences. There are no mistakes. Each of us is of the utmost importance. Everything that is meant to come my way will arrive in due time, and the right people will appear. Life is good.
And so, I know my wishes for the coming year:
1. To find and know my Sacred Contract.
2. To find and know a holy and lifegiving relationship.
Onward to the day. It is bright, sunny and wonderful in San Francisco today.
