I feel like there was not a year in my life that passed by as quickly as this one did. Since this incredible cycle has began, there was so much going on for humanity on this planet and we have been shaken up in so many ways, each of us can be proud for still standing strong. Teachings of self-leadership, of divine guidance from within and intense waves of higher love have reached us for support. Now its time to summon up what we have learned and to take it into the upcoming year 2018. Ghada Al Samman has stated it beautifully: “I didn’t fall in love, I walked to it in steady steps, with eyes wide open, I am standing in love, not falling in love”. Open your heart my friends and prepare yourself for more blessings to come.
People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. That’s what it’s all finally about.
There are two aspects of individual harmony: the harmony between body and soul, and the harmony between individuals. All the tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, comes from lack of harmony. And harmony is the best given by producing harmony in one’s own life.

The Paradoxical Commandments
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw
I was smiling yesterday, I am smiling today and I will smile tomorrow. Simply because life is too short to cry for anything.
Santosh KalwarDear Ones, it was a very intense year of learning and deep transformations for all of us on this planet. Many have taken a chance to rise in their awareness for the Golden Age of Aquarius, and discovered how each of us can actively be part in the manifestation of this shift. The upcoming year 2018 is in numerology caring the vibration eleven, that is a master number of manifestation, so relax a little bit around the Christmas time and than take a deep breath – more intense changes for a new world are coming up soon!!!
Love and Blessings!
