And now let us welcome the New Year
Full of things that have never been.
~Rainer Maria Rilke
January, the month of new beginnings and cherished memories, beckons. Come, let winter weave her wondrous spell: cold, crisp, woolen-muffler days, long dark evenings of savory suppers, lively conversations, or solitary joys. Outside the temperature drops as the snow falls softly. All of nature is at peace. We should be, too. Draw hearthside. This is the month to dream, to look forward to the year ahead and the journey within. ~Sarah Ban Breathnach
You have known us, Divine One, since before the foundation of the world. You are closer than hands and feet. Truly, as it is said, in You we live and move and have our being. Yet so often we feel alone, like strangers in a strange land. Although the mind may forget its divine birth, the heart yearns ceaselessly to remember. ~Joan Borysenko
Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a loving Source – a Source of Dreams – just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true. ~Sarah Ban Breathnach
As you enter this new year, nothing in the past has any power to affect what you do now. You are an entirely new person, different from the person you were. This year has never been lived before, and you have never had the consciousness you now have. You are setting sail on a great adventure determined only by how grand you are willing to think. This year, think big thoughts to create miraculous results. ~Alan Cohen
