When we are conscious in our lives, we see and feel when the time has come to make a change.

It is time for me to step into the turmoil of change without knowing all the steps on the path, recognizing that life is a journey of transition not destination.

I feel a powerful motivation to step toward the change in energy I feel in my life.

No matter how hard I have tried lately, I can’t shake off the impetus to stop, surrender and listen carefully to the voice of transition that is constantly giving me guidance to move in a new direction.

For this reason, my final Hopeful Note, at least for the time being, will be published on Friday, December 19th just before the winter solstice.

The winter time is a time to put certain things to bed, like our garden, so that in the spring the plants may flourish again.

However, this does not mean I will lose consciousness about my journey or isolate in my bedroom.

 I will  be pursuing new interests, gathering my energy and consciously paying attention to the path I am on.

I will emerge in a new way.

I don’t know what that is at the moment but I am consciously engaging in the process in a mindful way.

In the next few days before our time together draws to a close I will let you know as best I can the aspects of my journey of which I am aware.

I am grateful to you for being my fellow traveller.
