Happy New Year

Happy New Year! On this first day of the year, you are all full of hope! You tell yourselves, “I didn’t get what I was hoping for during the last year, but now, with the new year, I shall.” Each new year brings hope even to the most despondent. Even if deep down they may not be so convinced, they still have some hope. With each new year hope is reborn: you cannot help but think that something is going to improve for you, that a door will open. You will say, “And what if nothing improves and no door opens?” At least one door will open if you believe you have to do something to make it happen. And what is that? Picture yourself in particular situations in your life, and imagine you are behaving fairly, wisely and lovingly. By working in this way, you are already preparing your future. If you are sincere and persevere, you will have an influence on the forces of nature and the beings of light in the invisible …

New Year’s Eve Meditation

“Tomorrow a new year begins, and you can begin to make ready for it consciously by focusing on a goal: a quality you want to develop, a bad habit you want to lose, a project you want to carry out for the glory of God. With this thought, this wish, it is as if you are laying the first stone, and then all the luminous nature spirits will contribute their help, so that you can realize your divine plan. These should be your thoughts on this last day of the year. Unfortunately, you won’t meet many people concerned with such things. Most are getting ready to indulge in all kinds of excess. Can you be surprised, then, if the year goes badly for them? So you at least, who are disciples of the divine school, do your best to see in the new year with the light as your focus.” … “If you want the new year to be truly new for you, think of it as a living, wealthy being that can bring you …

The New Year

The Cabbalah teaches that each day is a living, sentient┬ábeing which bears the record of all our physical and psychic acts. You might say that the 365 days of the year are like a magnetic tape on which each day, with all that it has brought of good and evil, happiness and unhappiness, is recorded. Each separate year of our lives is like a separate tape recording.┬áThe New Year is new and yet, at the same time, it is already old, aged by all that each one of us has already gone through in our lives. The new year is like the pure water of a mountain stream as it mingles with the stagnant waters of the lowlands; it is new and yet it is not altogether new because it is lived by human beings who are burdened by their past. This is why, although all is new, men and women never manage to live an entirely new life. The New Year is a spotless virgin, but who knows what shady resorts it will get …
