Seasons greetings & Merry Christmas.
In our life a new day comes every day but only once in 365 days a new day also come with new year. Like circle of 360 degree, 365 days of a year also represents a circle of time. Only few who learn from previous circle and plan for new circle move vertical in the circle and create a spring of evolution in life. For other it is like moving around the same circle throughout the life, like in picture below.
What you learn and in what sense you evolve from one year to another depends upon you. Some collect bitter memories and experiences and others in all circumstances collect good memories and experiences.
If you are an atheist then I assure you that in next year I will be with you to create positive experiences in your life whenever you want just remember me and I will do my bit for your.
If you are a theist and believe in many gods then I pray to all your gods that help my friend in achieving all whatever Sattva s/he want to get in his/her life.
If you are a theist and believe in only one god then I pray to that one God that please help my friend in living with you in all the walk of his/her life and your love shower upon her/him for the whole year.
If you are theist and believe in Ishwara of Advaita Vedanta then I mediate with you to be one with unmanifested God and manifest all the virtues in the nature and lives around in the next year.
Wish you a very happy, health, joyful new year ahead.
