Beyond New Year resolutions

In this vast existence, there is no such thing as “Old Year” and “New Year”. These are all demarcations that we as human beings have made. Why we have made these demarcations is because we need some milestones to tell us whether we are going forward or backward.

So this is once again a new year, this is time for you to measure, in the last one year have you moved forward as a human being?

If you feel the world around you – you will see your experience is a cacophony of voices, thoughts and emotions.

These voices, thoughts and emotions are all an outpouring of confusions of many different levels and states.

With a very distorted perception of the current reality, these voices, thoughts and emotions are formed and expressed. When man is in this level of confusion, when he is subjugated by the misconceptions of reality around him, the pain and suffering that he creates for himself and the people around him is tragic.

We are always trying to create our life based on the current reality that exists around us at this moment. What we want as the highest in life need not have anything to do with our present situation.

If we enslave our visions to current situations, then it is once again settling for what is attainable, what is easy, what you think is possible.

It is not in terms of thinking what is possible or not possible. It is in terms of what you know as the highest, you just seek that.

 It doesn’t matter whether it is going to happen or not, simply living with that vision itself is very elevating, is itself very liberating, is itself a very joyous process for any person.
You are not concerned about the result. It is just that you have a vision and you give your life towards it.

This is one of the easiest ways to attain the highest also – to simply give yourself, not caring whether it is going to happen or not. It is a spiritual process by itself.


Vision is an important way of transcending limitations within and outside ourselves.
It is time to really create a vision within ourselves as to what we really care for, not just for today.

If you look deep enough, your vision will be the universal vision.
Whether everything else happens or doesn’t happen on the way is not the point –

whatever you have known as the highest, simply seeking that with undivided attention - that is a simple way of knowing life here and beyond.
