Happy New Year

“And now let us believe in a long year that is given to us, new, untouched, full of things that have never been…”
Rainer Maria Rilke – Letter to Clara Rilke, 1 Jan 1907.

May we all be safe from all danger

Held safe from all harm

Have physical happiness

Have mental happiness

Have spiritual happiness

And may we all have the ability to happily care for ourselves.

(From a Tibetan prayer to be said as meta on our meta beads. We say once for all, then each for our enemies, for those we care for, for our loved ones, and for those unknown. Of course meta can be said for a particular person in need.) Like all prayers, they calm and give peace to those who pray for others.

And may we all have a blessed and safe New Year. Think on it truly: Full of the unknown, and opportunities, and possibilities. Filled with hope and joy, let us go forth!
