									50 I would make the reminder for gentlemen that there is an inherent and powerfully
structural biological difference for ladies of this age, as they experience an inline
inkarnational death around this age - the childbearing person they were since their early
teens comes to an end, and a structurally DIFFERENT person comes into being. So this
is NOT about vanity or prettiness; it is a lot more than that on every level and it was little
wonder that my friend felt unsure. What she did NOT want to happen is to go into this
first night of the 50th year of her life full of regrets, worries, sorrows and loss of life; she
wanted something better than that for herself, a celebration to help with this threshold
moment, deliniated by the way we measure time and count the days. We could have
easily chatted away the last remaining hour and a half before the clock struck 12
midnight and try and ignore this thing; but I didn't feel that this was appropriate as it a
highly personal transition so we began to discuss a suitable transitional ritual. Rather than
now performing some kind of "death rite" where one gets involved with all the
ne'ermores across one's entire life, such as, "I will never hold a baby of my own in my
arms again ..." and "I'll never dance to the Rolling Stones live at the Catacomb in a
miniskirt again ..." I suggested we focus instead just on the year that had just passed, year
49. What had happened during that year? Well quite a lot, actually. My friend got to live
in house by the beach she always wanted. She had written and published her first book.
She had written her first hymn, had her first public exhibition of her paintings and had
swam with dolphins. How amazing! And how much more amazing still to consider that if
we were to travel back in time by just two years, to her 48th birthday, and we discussed
what might be to come, and I might have suggested just one of these things, she would
have NEVER believed it possible and laughed at me. So what might year 50 possibly
hold in the way of new surprises and unfoldments?! We cannot know. But one thing we
can know is that it is a year of new life, of new experiences, of new challenges, triumphs
and moments of glory. And it deserves to be stepped into proudly, and gladly, and in full
acceptance of what will be to come. It was decided to ring in the moment with a beautiful
bath, by candlelight and a glass of champagne. To spend the time before 12 midnight to
give gratitude for what had been, and to spend a time of meditation after firmly turned to
the future, to have the space to ask for things that might have waited for many years to be
finally fulfilled and experienced; to have the space to ask for surprises and to declare
one's readiness to step, very literally fresh, clean and brightly new, into the new year of
life here in this fantastic world. This is what my friend then did, by herself, for herself
and it was delightful, magical and entirely special an occasion, without regrets and
instead, with a powerful lifting and affirmation of life, and love of life. She slept very
well, and when in the morning a box was delivered from which a helium balloon burst
with massive numbers 50 written on it, which further showered her carpet with small
sparkling pieces of foil, all with "50" imprinted on it, she laughed in delight and said,
"This is going to be marvellous year ..." Happy Birthday, Nicola! xxx SFX Get a FREE
