Is 2020 a new decade?


We are coming to the end of another year – another decade, and really what does it all mean? What is time and why are we so obsessed with putting time into bite-sized pieces and arranging it in neat rows which act as markers on our life’s journey. Why do we care, whether it is four o’clock in the morning or four hours past noon? I really do not know and hopefully, I will grow not to care so much. It’s so trite to say this but it’s true – life is what we make of it and so is time. If we think about it, we really do treat the years of our lives the same way that we treat the minutes. I was watching a movie recently and while at this particular moment, I cannot remember the title of the film, something stayed with me and it is this: The way you treat one thing, is the way you treat everything. When I heard this statement, for some reason it resonated with me and I started to take the time out to observe my life. I noticed, shockingly enough that I was the constant in my life. 

What do I mean? I mean that in all interactions I have, in all my varied circumstances, in my relationships, my work, my hobbies, my whole life; the one constant thing is me. So, if every relationship I have is ‘whack’, if every employer is ‘full of crap’ and if life, in general, is just plain ‘meaningless’, then whose fault is it? Can I really blame life? Or can I…should I blame myself and lift myself up and heal my life. If you do not know my answer, then I will tell you this: You are life. Nothing else exists but you and your feelings, your experiences, your relationships…just you. So, in order to make this world a better place and in order to improve your experience of this world, then you must exist in a better place and you must improve on your experience of this world. And maybe, just maybe, if we are all better in the stretch of time we occupy, if we live each second like we would live our whole lives…if we treat each brush stroke like the bigger picture, then maybe at the end of the year 2020, we will look back and whisper to our selves: “What a way to start the decade.” 

love, peace and light
