What kind of year will 2017 be? Some things are under our control and some are not. One area that all of us have under our control is our personal state of enlightenment. By enlightenment, I refer to a better understanding of ourselves, our environment and the human experience as a whole. Enlightenment is not an endpoint; rather, it is a never ending continuum. Seeking to have a greater understanding of things is a process, not a destination.
