Wishing you all a Happy New Year

Every moment is a new moment.We are never the same in the running water of time.
With every thing hectic everywhere,chaos and a RUN going on continuously, to know our displacements in time and space, we humans devised certain measures, measures based on some referents in a certain frame of reference.
What have passed, good or bad,happy or sad, are now our memories only,what we plan for our future too, are only memories.The feed forward helps us re-shape our future for our well being.But to reshape we only have moments of present.Here we find that there is an other way round.Our continuous momentary "present" is our real existence,but it runs so fast, no one can hold it on.By the time we think on it is becomes past and grabs its place in memories.
So the cycle moves continuously, and we have only moments to reshape the future. Here,I would not say,"if possible", because we trust, "it is possible".
What is required is that, the fast running moment of present IS the only "life" we live in.
So let us live and love this life and WISH:

सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनह् सर्वे सन्तु निरामया
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु मा कश्चित्दुख्भाग्भवेत्।

sarve bhavantu sukhinah sarve santu nirāmayā
sarve bhadrāṇi paśyantu mā kaścitdukhbhāgbhavet

Nothing else, perhaps, expresses our WISH as Tagore expressed clearly as a poem in Gitanjali:

Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been
broken up into fragments
by narrow domestic walls; ...
Where the clear stream of reason
has not lost its way into the
dreary desert sand of dead habit; ...
Into that heaven of freedom,
my Father, let my country awake.

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous NEW Year.
