Not really looking forward to 2021

We are living in an interesting times. And this can be a beautiful thing or a curse. Just like every time so far, in December we review the passing year and we make a resolution for the next.

Every new year brings a cycle of hope that things will be better. January is when we commit to exercise more, eat healthier, quit smoking... become the person we always wanted to be. We believe in the power of change and promise ourselves: “This is our year”.

I'm doing the same thing but this time, the first time in my life, I am not looking forward to the new year. 2020 was bad, a year where we were alive but not really living. Our basic, human rights have been cancelled in the name of protecting others.

2021 is expected to be a post-pandemic year where things might be better, where life will be returned to the "normal". After careful investigation I don't see any evidence for that. I will reference some interesting articles, if you have time, read it and make conclusion for yourself.

The Post Covid World, The WEF’s Diabolical Project: “Resetting the Future of Work Agenda” – After “The Great Reset”. A Horrifying Future

This morning I've finished the planning for 2021. I've done my 2021 resolution and I've no hope that something better will come. In 2021 I'll not travel anywhere outside of Canada and I'll not buy any unnecessary thing.

I have three major concerns in 2021 - behavior according to principles of self-realization, increase physical exercises and strict financial discipline for paying off my debt.

Although, there are no strict rules how I should behave in this world it is good to follow some guidance in order to remind me and keep me in line with my main life's goal... self-realization.

To take interest in what has happened is to get involved in worldly affairs. That leads to nowhere. The key of self-realization lies in DOING JUST NOTHING. It is the lonely road across boredom, melancholy and depression. 

Activities create misery, worry and anxiety and they are included in the world. Being aware and let things happen on their own natural way is the main thing for 2021. I'll do things that must be done without engaging in something new. Doing is restlessness of the personality - identification with the body. It is the habit of ignorance.

I have to pay special attention to things that make me angry and investigate why something insults me and be completely free of anger. Usually the anger comes when my expectations are not met. The surge of anger indicates my habit of wanting to dictate things to others.

Life is tough, not only for me but for everyone on this planet. There is no need to define why it is so, it just is. I need to be kind to others. Humor, flexibility, and being "large" from the very core of my heart is the next key for 2021.

Acting with lightness, humor, radiating energy of happiness and letting others take it, enjoying whatever I'm doing and leaving the world as it is. For that I need real courage. I'll be free of fear by clearly knowing who I Am, I'll enjoy things while they last.

In 2021 I'll be 56 so I need to increase physical activity. Regular yoga practice is main thing for this. I target to be 183 practices for the whole year. Starting from December I'll include weight lifting in my regular exercise routine. Also I will try to spend more time out of my condo.

The big change in 2021 will be in financial sector of my life. I have calculated that I need $40 per day for food and household needs. Strict financial discipline is a key to pay off my debt by the July 31, 2021.

And this is it. 2021, no traveling, strict discipline for exercise, watchful for spending and just being aware will do.
