I often wonder if we should be meditating on the year gone by or sing a welcome to a year about to begin.

Should we look back and pick up bits and scraps of wisdom from the path just walked or jubilantly look forward to the unknown and hope for a bigger share of luck. If you pick up wisdom of experience, future will bring success. Hope alone will not work.

Look to the sunrise for ‘hope’ and look to the sunset for ‘wisdom’.
