master-transparent-cutoutOur old tutor of last year has just passed away. Let us all remember the valuable lessons that he taught us and thus dedicate our future actions on the altar of the coming New Year.

Let us remember the dire discipline which we received as a result of our erroneous ways, and let us not repeat them on the sanctum of the New Year decorated with the fresh blossoms of our new hopes.

Let us remember the joyous instructions and blissful experiences of the past year, and let us repeat them with greater intensity in the coming New Year.

Let us forget the sorrows of the past and make up our minds not to bring them back in the coming New Year. With new determination and unflinching will, let us make up our mind to renew our life, our better habits, our successes in the temple of the New Year. If the last year has been hopelessly bad, the New Year must be hopefully good.

Remember, no matter what our trials have been, or how discouraged we are, if we will make a continued effort to be better and to succeed, we will find that, being made in the image of God, we are endowed with unlimited power, much stronger than our worst trials, no matter what they may be.

Let us make up our minds that we will win, focusing all our concentration on the ceaseless efforts to succeed in the New Year, and we will surely be victorious. Remember that our past difficulties did not come to crush us but to strengthen our determination to use our limitless divine powers to succeed. God wants us to conquer the difficult tests of life and come back to His home of wisdom.

Let us return in this New Year.
