Greetings All,

Today is the fifth day of Kwanzaa. We celebrate Nia, the Swahili word for purpose.  Listen to my reflection on Nia  below.

What is your definition of purpose?

What was your purpose for 2009?

What is your purpose for 2010?

In 2009, my purpose was centered in my intention to take better care of myself.  My practice of self-care elegantly unfolded into a commitment to be kind and gentle with myself. Compassion was the elixir that fueled my kind and gentle self-care practice.  As a result, I was able to incorporate more kindness, gentleness, and compassion into my creative/yoga/Reiki healing touch/social media work, service efforts, and interactions with others.

In 2010, my purpose is to deepen my commitment to practice and promote compassion in my creative/yoga/Reiki healing touch/social media work, service efforts, and interactions with others.  I have adopted the Charter for Compassion, a global campaign created by British author Karen Armstrong (launched on November 12, 2009), as a guide for healthy, mindful, and balanced living.  In the coming months, I will mindfully weave the Charter for Compassion’s goals into my creative/yoga/Reiki healing touch/social media work, service efforts, and interactions with others.  To learn more about the Charter for Compassion, watch the video below.

Enjoy your day and week!

Peace, Creativity, Purpose, and Compassion,

Ananda
