Year 2009 is bidding adieu and 2010 is blossoming forth shortly. Let this New Year bring with it all the joy and happiness. Let the universal prosperity and universal brotherhood prevail all over. Let success prevail over failures. The one who realises God is the most successful of all. Every action of ours is being monitored by Him. Let us do only good things in life. Let us not shirk our responsibilities and do our work with perfection. Both mind and body should be properly nurtured. The one without the other becomes useless. Harmonious environment is crucial for inner peace. Developing negative mental attitude is equivalent to digging our own graves. Our thoughts are extremely powerful than our actions. The mere thought of feeling good transforms our environment filled with positive vibrations leading to joy and happiness. Serving aged parents is important than serving for a social cause. Serving others without selfishness is the service rendered to God. Fear and worry are the dangerous enemies to prosperity. God never likes a place filled with emotions. Failure and sickness can be impelled out by establishing commune with God. Live in the present. Neither our past was decided by us, nor will our future be decided by us. All of our actions unfold as per our karma. By performing actions that please God, give us everlasting happiness. We have to learn to be with Him at the appointed time daily. The quality of time spent with Him is more important than quantity of time. “And Allah doth advance in guidance those who seek guidance: and the things that endure, Good Deeds, are best in the sight of thy Lord, as rewards, and best in respect of (their) eventual returns.” Says Holy Koran (Surah 19 Maryam: Mary: 5:76) “And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and in live his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offering and sacrifices.” Says the Holy Bible (Mark 12:33) “He who is free from hatred toward all creatures, is friendly and kind to all, is devoid of the consciousness of “I-ness” and passiveness; is even minded in suffering and joy, forgiving, ever contended; a regular yoga practitioner, constantly trying by yoga to know the Self and to unite with Spirit, possessed of firm determination, with mind and discrimination surrendered to Me – he is My devotee, dear to Me.” Says Bhagavad Gita (XII.14, 15) Let us welcome 2010 with love and compassion, happiness and joy and multitude of wealth and prosperity by seeking His eternal grace. HAPPY NEW YEAR.
