Time ‘really’ flies and we are left with only memories of the past! Rightly said, every one of us are only a mere slave of time and space that bind us in our actions and thoughts. We make resolutions at the start of a new year to bring in a better future into our lives – whether it is money, health or happiness! Everyone looks forward to the New Year with renewed hope, love and faith!
A New Year resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to a personal goal, project, or reforming of a habit. This lifestyle change is generally interpreted as advantageous and one is expected to be strong and resolute enough to see through the implementation of what we desire! A New Year’s Resolution is generally a goal someone sets out to accomplish in the coming year.
We get wiser and older as a result of experience and ‘no doing’ of ours! Again, establishing the same fact – that we are bound by time and its expansive influence on our individual lives; and, however strong we are, we cannot resist it! During younger years of my life, I used to get quite excited and would shoot out New Year email greetings to my ‘near and dear’ friends and relatives. Well, times have changed; now, I do not want to be intrusive and send out bulk-mail as it is not taken in the right spirit, at least not by each one I know! Life revolves around our own ‘nuclear’ families and we tend to take this as ‘the right’ in our actions. Search for harmony and inner peace, for self-fulfillment, self-realization, for calmness or however we may wish to describe, remains indisputably the top goal.
But, there is Oneness prevailing amongst all of us, if we can steadily reflect on our thoughts and actions. We are of the same kind and as we advance in our age, we can feel that the others, especially our ‘near and dear’, are in our mind all the time and our best wishes reach them without our declaring them aloud! I wish there is much more humanity in our actions, tenderness in our feelings for other beings, respect for all those who ‘rightly’ guide us in our lives, and our lives are filled with love and affection for children and women in particular.
May this New Year represent a better day ahead, a richer goal to pursue, lead to more belief in ourselves and build greater faith in the Oneness I experience and refer to all the time!
