For A New Dawn in A New Year 2013

For a new day in a New Year, here is some inspiration to warm your soul, and help you chart your direction in this coming year...

I am wishing for a very full and rich year of growth - for all beings - and for myself as well...

"This is my New Year's wish for you: 
that you all reach the land beyond your dreams, 
where there is peace and joy eternal." 
~ Paramahansa Yogananda

"Spread your arms wide into the future. 
The best is yet to come!" 
~ Anthony de Mello, SJ

"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 

"The only limits are, as always, those of vision."
~ James Broughton

"Make your life a mission -- not an intermission."
~ Arnold H. Glasgow 

"Visualize yourself standing before a gateway on a hilltop. 
Your entire life lies out before you and below. 
Before you step through, pause and review the past; 
the learning and the joys, the victories and the sorrows -- 
everything it took to bring you here."
~ The Book of Runes

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. 
Ask yourself what makes you come alive, 
and then go do that. 
Because what the world needs 
is people who have come alive."
~ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The grand essentials to happiness in this life 
are something to do, something to love, 
and something to hope for."
~ Joseph Addison

And finally - from me, these last two:

"May the New Year bring you blessings 
beyond your wildest dreams. 
May you receive what you most need. 
May you share your unique gifts 
and shine your light where it is most needed. 
May you live your lives fully 
and completely in every way, 
and make this world a better one 
by your presence - 
in little and small ways, for such actions 
are the ones most encountered, 
and each one is impregnated 
with the Spirit of the Divine. 
Make it a good year!"

NEW YEAR'S PRAYER

May all beings be happy 
in the New year.
May all beings have peace 
in the New Year.
May all beings open their hearts 
in the New Year.
May all beings experience oneness 
in the New Year.
May all beings experience healing 
in the New Year.
May all beings taste joy 
and drink from the river of compassion 
in the New Year.
May all beings forgive one another 
in the New Year.
May all beings awake
in the New Year.
May all beings sow peace 
and know peace 
in the New Year."
