Happy New Year

                                        Shana Tova, or, Happy New Year!

The Jewish New Year  of  the year 5,772, began last night at sundown, so today eat sweet and delicious things and make a wish for your year to come:)

Here's some beautiful advice to meditate on, not only for a new year, but for life, c/o The Findhorn Foundation's Eileen Caddy.

Guidance for 29 September

Many times you have heard the words, "Life is what you make it," but what have you done about it? Do you not realise that you control your life, your happiness, your success, your joys and your sorrows? Life can be wonderful, thrilling and glorious, but it is up to you to make it so by expecting the very best. Live one day at a time and live it to the full. Never waste time worrying about tomorrow and what it may bring, or allow yourself to become depressed because you feel you cannot cope with whatever that may be. Always look on the bright side of life and concentrate on it in the everpresent now. Because yesterday did not go smoothly does not mean that today will be the same. Leave yesterday behind; learn from it, but do not allow it to spoil today. Today lies in front of you, untouched and unblemished. What are you going to do with it?
