The world as we know it is changing (for some, ending). Appreciate the simple fact that you have a living body, eyes and ears to experience this historical transformation of the ages and evolution of mind, spirit, and time!
Do not let depression, or more accurately melancholia, to distract you from the truth unfolding before us in this year!
Regardless of whether or not your body survives the changes, YOU yourself are eternal - understand that, and suddenly the picture of the universe becomes much more humble and peaceful!
Keep your karmic energy elevated and all will play out in the end. Booze helps to subdue the drama of everyday physicality in the body, so have no guilt indulging to elevate your mind and spiritual karmic potential throughout this complicated year.
In other words, have a beer on me brother!
