Wish You a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2012. Let this year herald well-being, ease, positive growth and abundance in every form, by staying aligned with your life-stream.
Technically, a year, 365 days, is the time it takes for Earth to make one full revolution around the sun. So basically we can start a new year on any day, at any hour – and actually different calendars are in existence among different cultures based on the time they started calculating their year (an estimate says there are close to 40 different calendars used in the world today). However, we require a “standard” that can help facilitate measuring time, and days, on a global level, hence the whole world has accepted the “Gregorian calendar” as the standard of measuring a year. So this New Year is a new year with reference to the Gregorian calendar. In truth, since the earth just keeps revolving in circles, each day is a new year, a new beginning, a new start, and a new celebration – you don’t need to reserve your celebration to just one day every year, rather let every day be a celebration of your physical life here on this planet.
A lot of us stay burdened by our past so much that we are hardly “light” enough to be carried towards our new, fresh, realities swiftly. The past is done with, it’s dead and over, every new moment is a new beginning, a new you, just learn the simple art of letting go of focusing on the past – especially the negatives of the past. Don’t live in a “past identity” and keep allowing yourself to come into this moment in a “fresh” manner, so that you are fully open to the invitation of this moment. If you keep holding onto the past, you will continue missing the “present”(the gift) that this moment offers in the form of inner guidance, inspirations and enjoyment. You can use this New Year as a symbolic beginning of a new journey where you drop your old baggage, your past identities, past judgments and start afresh, connecting/aligning with your life-stream in a deeper way and opening yourself up to a new adventure. Travel light and enjoy your physical journey in 2012.
It’s a nice coincidence that this is the 200th post of this blog.
