6 wholelifetimes.com contributors from the editor December 21st marks our longest night – the Winter Solstice…. And the holy holidays are well upon us. 2019 was another whirlwind of a year. Did you stop yet to take a moment to reflect? Do you have plans for 2020? In this special holiday edition, we asked a few of our talent- ed writers to consider this question: As we round out this decade and enter 2020, is there a particular vision or wish you have for yourself or for the planet? What would you like to see in the decade ahead? As we near 2020, I would like to see the acceptance and understanding of differences and diversity increase, and I hope to see a more tolerant world. In the context of autism, it is my hope that we increase the integration of people with autism (and other special needs) in the community at all levels, including schools, neighborhoods, and places of employment. Mary Jane Weiss (Pg. 12) My goal for myself and the planet this year is to shed black-and-white thinking. I really believe that our peace, both mentally and physically, lies in the gray area. For myself, I know when I get into extreme thinking, I'm left either disappointed or terrified. I want to set my goals to be realistic, attainable, and comfortable. I wish the same for the planet — goals that are realistic, attainable, and comfortable for everyone. Laura Rhodes-Levin (Pg. 18) My vision for 2020, and this next decade, is to be a vehicle of empowerment and transformation for people, and for the planet. There needs to be a huge overhaul of life in this world as we know it: with health care, with how we live and work, with the environment, with how we grow our food, with animals, and with consciousness. I'm committed to doing whatever it takes to make that happen. Joyce Gerber (Pg. 10) Sunny Chayes (Pg. 8) My vision is for a global society that's awakened the "creative dreamer" within us to bring about a joyous new story for sustainable harmony and peace — a society that has learned and uses the benefits of peaceful conflict resolution with loving outcomes filled with Angel Activism to uplift all with humility and nobility … a world where the ever-flowing nurturing of Mother Earth is embraced and we nurture in return.
