As this new year of 2022 starts, I’ve noticed the “us versus them” scenarios are being broadcasted louder and more intensely, whether you listen to main stream media or alternate sources of information. I have also noticed that the fear level out there has intensified.

To me the sources of information we are receiving have something in common – that is suggesting there is something or someone out there who is going to get us out of the perceived mess many are saying we’re in – whether it’s governments, or some good intentioned people/beings like the “white hats” or angels or a higher power.

Yes, there is no shortage of voices telling us what to think, say and do. It’s easy to get drawn in to them, pulling us off our centre and causing us to be afraid. This is especially true with technology now and the algorithms that quickly give us more of the same without us even asking for it!

So what has this to do with really knowing yourself?

It has everything to do with knowing what’s right for you, to be peaceful and centred regardless of the chaos around you. It’s about knowing who you really are – as a personality, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Easier said than done I know. I’m working on it too. Some days I’m better at it than others, that’s the way of life here on Earth.

Of course this idea of “know thyself” is nothing new, but it seems to me it is fundamentally important at this time to help each of us to know what we want, to create the life we want for ourselves, our families, our communities and our country.

I encourage you to get to know yourself more deeply. Take as much time as you can to sit in silence, and to find the teachers and tools that are right for you when you need them. There is much assistance available from many, including me. You’ll find a Resources page on my website that offers much that has been helpful to me so far. Let me know if you would like to hear more from me.
