It isn't too late to make New Year's resolutions to guide your choices this year. So when I received a note from http://avaaz.org urging us to make a pledge to ourselves this year, I was inspired. Here's an excerpt from their note:
Dag Hammarskjöld, the great UN leader, once reflected that we'd never make sustainable progress in our world until we all "walked the longest journey". The journey within.
Each of our capacities to create the world we dream of depends on our own journey, from fear to love, towards believing in ourselves, and leaving our demons behind.
We've come together as a community hundreds of times in campaigns, and created magic. At this most reflective time of a new year, let's come together around this, most important campaign of all – the campaign for ourselves, to "be the change we wish to see" – for us, and for all the people we love and the planet we call home.
Our community has chosen 3 simple but powerful values to support each other to follow in 2015. When 500,000 of us pledge, we'll invite world leaders to join us, and we'll check in 3 times this coming year to see how we're all doing — click to see them and sign a new year's pledge to ourselves:
Since the three principles: to be kind and respectful, to strive for wisdom, and to practice gratitude are core values for anyone on a spiritual journey, I want to invite all of you to join me in making the pledge… and if you haven't already, to sign up for notices from this site… They offer each of us a voice in world affairs and have served to tip the scales on the side of justice and fairness in some astounding ways. Let your voice be heard, join http://avaaz.org.
