2022: Set Intentions, Not Resolutions

By Venus Gentile

Another year has passed, and we are about to enter a new passage of time called 2022. This year will be a very significant one in many ways. It will be a year of manifestation, awakening, and clarity. Last year was a turbulent, chaotic, and unruly time in our history. It is so easy to become distracted, disappointed, and discouraged by the world around us.

Even with so much going on, we can use the unlimited power of our minds to achieve our desired outcome.

As the great Buddha once said, "All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything, and what we think we become." How will you use your thoughts in 2022 to achieve your dreams?

At this time of year, most of us have already compiled a list of all the things we want to achieve, also known as New Year resolutions. The problem is, that list is most likely a continuation or a repeat of what we wrote last year. The reason is; we set ourselves up for failure and, most of the time, don't even realize WHY we are setting these goals. We attach ourselves more to the outcome instead of allowing ourselves to enjoy the journey.
