word for 2012

Beloved accompanied me through 2011. The only thing new about that was my awareness. Of course, Beloved is always there. Always.

As 2012 approached, my word had not yet revealed itself to me. I'd hear appealing words pop up and think, "Oh, maybe that's it...." Nope. In fact, I can't even remember what they were now--that how "not it" they were.

Yesterday, as I caught up on my blog reading, my word repeated itself. I got it.


Mmm. Yes.

It came to me...with ease. All I had to do was be patient. (Oh, this going to be a double whammy year?) I waited. I didn't push. I listened.

I think that may be what ease is about. Certainly, I know that it doesn't mean that everything will be easy. (I must admit I long for that at times.) What I expect is that I will be trained in the awareness of ease...just as I have been trained in the awareness of Beloved. Even the rough spots can show me the path of ease.

I also think it was no accident that Beloved came to me before Ease. Huh.

So as I watch and wait and become aware of Ease in my life this year, I wish the same for you--inner and outer. May we all be so blessed.

Happy New Year, my friend. I'm so glad to see your word for the year and look forward to seeing how it reveals its lessons to you in the year to come. Your lessons always impact mine. Ease is a tricky word - I'm thinking the opposite of resistance (at least that's what it says to me). :-)

A wonderful word. May we all ease through 2012 with ease.
