Happy and Healthy New Year 2018

December 31, 2017

Healthy and Happy New Year!!

As we prepare for another new year, another new, another beginning, we look forward to all that we wish for.  The good that we wish for ourselves, is the good that we wish for others and vice-versa.

For this New Year, let’s do more than just wish.  Let’s plan on making this a “Happy New Year”.  Let’s make this the year where our deeds make our wishes reality.  A year where we tap into “all of our possibilities” and potential to be the human we are destined and created to be.

We have no control over what is sent our way.  To make it a happy year, let us focus on that which we do have control of; what we say and what we do.

All that we need and the world we all wish for is in our hands.

There is this story of a great old wise man, a seer, who was coming to a town to speak.  Many, many people waited with great anticipation for his arrival and then went to hear him speak.  Among them, was this one young and skeptical man, who went simply to challenge the wise man.  After the wise man spoke, there was a Q&A. When it was the young mans turn, he put out his cupped hands and asked the wise man what was in his hands. The wise man replied, “two little birds”, which was right. The young man was stunned, but he was still skeptical, so he asked whether they were dead or alive. The wise man knew that if he replied, “they’re dead”, the young man would open his hands and the birds would fly away. If he replied “they’re alive”, the young man would crush the birds in his hands. The wise man’s reply was

“the answer is all in your hands.”

Healthy and Happy 2018
