Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.
Today, as we wish each other a Happy New Year, let us determine to be more sincere, compassionate, warm-hearted human beings, trying to make our world a more equal place. That way we’ll actually make it a happy year.

I have laboured carefully, not to mock, lament, or execrate human actions, but to understand them.
You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.
- Kurt Vonnegut
The Self is hidden in the lotus of the heart. Those who see themselves in all the creatures go day by day into the world of Brahman hidden in the heart. Established in peace, they rise above body consciousness to the supreme light of the Self. Immortal, free from fear, this Self is Brahman, called the True. Beyond the mortal and the immortal, he binds both worlds together. Those who know this live day after day in heaven in this very life.
- Chandogya Upanishad
