A Wish on the Eve of the New Year
By Don Iannone












This year has just about passed, and
the new year stands wait at our front door.
Pausing to reflect upon the world,
and all it is to all we are,
the notion that we are one seamless being
pushes our imaginations beyond
their normal comfort zones, and to a place
where all things are just one thing,
and that one thing is all we are.
Should a candle of hope ignite inside me,
giving birth to a wish, it would be
that we find meaning in our unbounded connectedness,
transcending the galaxy of excuses we allow
to separate ourselves from all else.
May I light this candle, and
may we all be enjoined by this wish.

Beautiful! Jupiter, who brings understanding, will be in the Archer, it's home place, during the next year. May your wish come true, Don! And a happy new year to you!:)

Hi Don, Thanks!
you have asked me about astrology before
According to physics, the universe
and the stars are following paths predetermined laws ...
as to the ability to interpret such
events in relation to humans and our every day lives ...

for the final moments of this year

Live your dreams Don.
May your light shine and express itself upon all people you meet ... perhaps lighting up their way too.
God Bless.
