Every second is the birth of a new year. Seconds add up to minutes, minutes to hours, hours to days, days to months and months to years. Thus, there is no particular sanctity about the beginning or ending of a year. There are people who attribute special significance to this day and speculate on some extraordinary or awesome events to take place. The time or date is not the cause of your happiness or misery. Your own actions (Karma) in the past are the cause of both your happiness and misery. As is the seed, so is the plant and fruit; they cannot be different. Do not waste your mental energy in speculations of this or that happening! Embodiments of Love! When actions performed by you are proper and pure, you will get good results only! God is the master of time. He transcends time. God should be your first priority! Cultivate pure, steady and unselfish love in the New Year! (Divine Discourse, Jan 1, 2000)
