Qualia and Quanta
Ah, those New Year's resolutions.
I suppose that the passage of another calendar year serves to remind us that there are an infinite number of things to do and a finite amount of time to do them in and so we must prioritize.
So many potential things to accomplish or attain and only so many days of our life to do it all in. Yet, somehow, we still contrive to waste most of the time in a day, most of the days in a year, most of the years of our life.
Each new year comes along and we are reminded that:
a) time is slip, slip, slipping away,
b) we have not yet completed our commitments, and
c) we want to.
It also serves as a reminder that although we have ideals that are either inherently understood or expressly defined, we are not living up to these ideals and so we must resolve to, once again, commit to being and acting in tune with our ideals.
Get happy. Get healthy. Get wealthy. Get wise. Those are the summaries of the typical resolutions made. Specific goals or actions are often substituted as the defined resolution, but it is usually one of those four ideals that are the root impetus to change.
So there it is?change; we recognize that we must change in order to achieve our ideals and the resolutions reflect this recognition. It is change that we desire and this is reflected in the resolutions we make. They define our dissatisfaction. They delineate the gap or space between what we idealize and we recognize as being the current actuality or reality.
To cross that gap requires resolution. "I must be the change I wish to see in the world!"
Resolution has several synonyms; among them are: answer, declaration, determination, promise, resolve, solution and tenacity.
So your New Year's resolution is your answer, your declaration, your determination, your promise, your resolve, your solution and your tenacity. Your future abundance lies in today's resolution.
What exactly do you want and how much of it? Qualia and quanta. Decide and then resolve to have it. Be, then do, then have. Become, enact, prosper.
Start now. Resolve to be the change you wish to see in the world. Make it your declaration, your commitment, your promise, your tenacity and your solution to those great questions...what I am about and what is the purpose and meaning of my life.
