New year is knocking at the door. The year we are setting aside was also young a year ago. It is this second that is the link between the old and the new. The past is history and the present is blank. It is waiting for a painter, it is waiting for an artist, it is waiting for creativity, it is waiting for you.
Aren't we accountable for our actions? Every moment will ask for auditing. Are we prepared for it? If yes, we have arrived, if no, fresh thinking is needed. Is it fair to put our thought process into the hands and intellects of unknown hands and minds? Perhaps it is inappropriate to do so. Is it fair to outsource our own mine to unknown agency for discovery of diamond and jewel hidden inside us? No, not at all.
We are busy throughout our life. Busy like what? I can't compare this state of being busy with animals or insects activities. As these elements have a purpose, and of course well defined and meaningful. Can't we take break from these mindless activities? Can't we stop for a while to see whether the current route goes somewhere or it leads to blind alley? We put our destination under the feeble light of usher without knowing his/her (its) ability. We love light. But the reach of this light is never questioned. We never try to know what is there beyond this light. Why should we blame others for our own lapses? On petty issues we come out on roads. But we are not stirred by the fact that our intellect, our thinking faculty is on bondage. Who is to blame for these lapses? Of course, we are.
Should we explore our own path, our own desination? Yes, we have to choose. We have to learn how not to ignore the call of our heart. Ignoring this call is our state of inertia. We will have to come out of this inertia. Key is with us. And everybody has unique key to the calling of his/her heart. Wrong key, like wrong password will block the user's access. So it is better to utilize right one.
This beautiful mind needs beautiful nurturing. We have to nurtute it for good result. What should be the input to nurturing this beautiful gift? Again answer is simple. Creative thoughts, meaningful thought, and action according to these thoughts. Meaningful break from the monotony of thought and practice. This is sure to ignite sleeping/ dormant elements. Certainly it will increase our horizon.
Here we are to celebrate new beginning. Here we are to farewell this current crown holder. We have to salute the history and we have to write new history. Every year was once young, refreshing and full of vigour and resourcefullness. It was our own decision not to embrace it, it was our own choice to ignore it.
Excavate the mine that is inside you. Trust yourself. Find the key. Open your heart and mind. Celebrate this new year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
