A living entity
December 31st 2011
One year is ending, and another is about to begin. This is the time when everyone makes wishes for themselves, for their family and friends and for the whole world. It is the custom to come together, to embrace, to invite one another, in the hope that the new year will bring everyone all manner of good things. But before thinking about the new year, consider for a moment the year that is on its way out, and speak to it… You are surprised. What? Speak to the year? Yes. The Cabbalah tells us a year is a living being, so you can speak to it. So, talk to the year that is departing, and ask it to remember you. As it is alive, it doesn’t remain inactive; it has recorded not only your actions but also your wishes, your feelings and your thoughts. On the last day, it reports back to the lords of destiny, and it links you in to the new year. Know how to say goodbye to it before you take leave of it.
