I invite you to say this:

I love everything about me

I love my uncanny beauty and my bewildering pain

I love my hungry soul and my wounded longing

I love my flaws, my fears, and my scary frontiers

I will never forsake, betray, or deceive myself

I will always adore, forgive, and believe in myself

I will never refuse, abandon, or scorn myself

I will always amuse, delight, and redeem myself

2020: we're hydrated, having good sex with people who deserve us, eating veggies, hiking, leaving behind toxic relationships, communicating our feelings, saying no, respecting the planet and the animals on it, spoiling ourselves with love, and smashing the patriarchy.

Every minute of every hour of every day you are making the world, just as you are making yourself, and you might as well do it with generosity and kindness and style.

True or false: A wild streak of wicked luck is about to visit you, killing off your meek visions and making space for braver fantasies.

"Holiness is an infinite compassion for others," wrote author and activist Olive Schreiner. "The soul is awakened through service," said author Erica Jong. I agree with them.

So maybe the quest for "enlightenment" is at least as much about helping to alleviate the world's suffering as it is about attaining a transcendent level of awareness or making pious displays of devotion to some deity.

Here’s a confession: I have taken a vow to foster beauty, truth, love, justice, equality, tolerance, creativity, playfulness, and hope. To do this work is one of my life goals. I approach it with the devotion of a monk and the rigor of a warrior.

Does that mean I ignore difficulty and suffering and cruelty? Of course not. I’m trying to diminish the power of those problems, so I sure as hell better know a lot about them.

On the other hand, my main focus is on redemption and exaltation. It would be an inept use of my precious life energy to dwell incessantly on detailed descriptions of the world’s poisons. I’d rather channel at least 51 percent of my love and power into finding and providing antidotes for them.

It may actually be dangerous to have nothing to worry about, no problems to solve, no friction to heat you up. That state can stimulate an unconscious yearning for any old dumb trouble that might stir up some excitement.

"We should feel excited about the problems we confront and our ability to deal with them," says Robert A. Wilson. "Solving problems is one of the highest and most sensual of all our brain functions."

My Facebook friend Dawn Robertson wrote a thank-you note to her ego, and I like it! Here's what she said:

Dear Beloved Ego,

I’m sorry the conscious and spiritual communities have given you such a bad rap.

Thank you for caring how others perceive me.

Thank you for letting me believe I can actually make a difference in the world - whether true or not.

Thank you for not letting me hide beyond humility to make myself small.

Thank you for the selfies and self promotion.

Thank you for pushing me to crave validation through my acts of service.

Thank you for allowing me to be a unique human who can be self interested at times.

Thank you for delightfully reminding me I have a story during the good times and the bad.

Thank you for the drive to be “successful” and allowing that marker to be fluid.

Thank you for pushing me to take myself more seriously.

Thank you for helping guide me to make decisions and revealing my fears.

Thank you for questioning the bullshit around me while others may following along sheeply.

Thank you for letting me be human and messy.

Surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you and who have no agenda for your reform.

—Jess Lair and Kirsten Lauzon

Change yourself in the way you want everyone else to change
Love your enemies in case your friends turn out to be jerks
Brainwash yourself before someone nasty beats you to it
Write a love letter to your evil twin during a lunar eclipse
Fool the tricky red beasts guarding the Wheels of Time
Locate the master codex and add erudite graffiti to it
Dream up wilder, wetter, more interesting problems
Change your name every day for a thousand days
Exaggerate your flaws till they turn into virtues
Kill the apocalypse and annihilate Armageddon
Brag about what you can't do and don't have
Get a vanity license plate that reads KZMYAZ
Bow down to the greatest mystery you know
Make fun of people who make fun of people
See how far you can spit a mouthful of beer
Scare yourself with how beautiful you are
Stage a slow-motion water balloon fight
Pretend your wounds are exotic tattoos
Sing anarchist lullabies to lesbian trees
Commit a crime that breaks no laws
Sip the tears of someone you love
Build a plush orphanage in Minsk
Feel sorry for a devious lawyer
Rebel against your horoscope
Give yourself another chance
Write your autohagiography
Play games with no rules
Relax and go deeper
Dream like stones
Mock your fears
Drink the sun

Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it, while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill. The consequence of pessimism in the life of a nation is the same as in the life of the individual.

Pessimism kills the instinct that urges men to struggle against poverty, ignorance and crime, and dries up all the fountains of joy in the world.

—Helen Keller

The grounds of my hope have always been that history is wilder than our imagination of it and that the unexpected shows up far more regularly than we ever dream.

Our greatest responsibility is to be good ancestors.
—Jonas Salk

Another one of our great responsibilities is to be ancestors who experimented with the compassionate truth our entire lives.

At a family planning conference in Beijing, a researcher from Ghana presented testimony about tribal issues that he had in part gleaned through interviews with dead ancestors. He said that spirit mediums had acted as his "translators."

When he was met with skepticism from colleagues, he was defensive. "If I only heard from the living," he explained, "I wouldn't get a very good balance."

His perspective would be smart for all of us to consider as we contemplate how we can prevent the ongoing ecocide that's ravaging our planet.

It's crucial to work hard on practical and political shifts that will alleviate the stress we're putting on our shared environment. But it's also important to be in intimate touch with the influences of past humans who cared for the earth better than we are doing—and who might motivate us to be more tender and thoughtful as we contemplate the legacies we will leave for our descendants.

"Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so. If you assume there is no hope, you guarantee there will be no hope."

—Noam Chomsky

Howard Zinn wrote: An optimist isn’t necessarily a blithe, slightly sappy whistler in the dark of our time.

To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.

What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something.

If we remember those times and places–and there are so many–where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.

And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.
