WELCOME to 2014!
I dare say, it has been (so far) a flawless transition for me, meaning that since the december page gave up the ghost, I have not once written “2013” on a check or official document. Rare display of intellectual vigilance!
I also dare say, I am impressed at the non-existent New Year’s Resolutions I’ve been hearing from all y’all and out in the big bad world. Do New Year’s Resolutions not exist anymore?
Where’s your sense of commitment?
I’m telling you, the world is settling into a self-indulgent lethargy of humanity. Lapsed gym memberships, wagon deserters, cookie and cake consumption rages on!
With all my rabble-rousing enthusiasm, I say:
Keep the vices coming! Diets be damned.
And when you’ve finished your toast… back to the serious spiritual matters at hand:

If you LOVE the idea of the Sufi Youth Jam, whether you are attending or not, I heartfully invite you to donate money to help with registration and travel expenses for participants. You can dog-ear donations to the Sufi Ruhaniat International indicating your donation is specifically for the Sufi Youth Jam. Here’s a website: http://www.ruhaniat.org/index.
Note: I’m not sure what’s happening with chant circles yet. Nothing scheduled at the moment… I’ll keep you posted. Stay tuned. I haven’t discontinued them… I’m just in a temporary limbo.
