New Year’s Greetings! Thousands of people across the globe are celebrating with wisdom, silence, and meditation.
This New Year, make your mind like a non-stick pan, and enjoy your pancakes, fresh and new. And don’t even think back that you never washed your pan in the past; that too is gone. In this sense, every day is a New Year’s Day for you—every day is a celebration. Today is today. Calendars and calculations don’t exist then.
When you are happy, you don’t feel that you are growing old. You don’t feel that time is dragging. You don’t feel time at all—it could be millions of years; nothing has touched you or shaken you, and you have no plans. And even if you have a plan, time runs so fast. When time runs so fast, it also stands still.
In the morning, when you wake up, just sit and feel how time stands so still. When time stands still, it is meditation.
When time runs fast, you don’t feel it; that is karma yoga. And when Time stands still, that is dhyan yoga, meditation. See, if you are not used to the stillness of Time, if you are only on the run all the time, you will get depressed. We have this tremendous ability to enjoy both—running and being still.
As you grow older, the body has its limitations. If you have no ability to be still and don’t enjoy being still even for a short time, you will feel bored, confused, and depressed. That is what happens to all the so-called very active people when their bodies don’t allow them to be active anymore, and they cannot be still either.
This is where your mind is not with time. So, your mind should be with time. When the mind is with the time, it can be still.
May this year be a wisdom-filled year!
Love and Blessings
