New Years Message from Swami, 2011

Dear Friends: I want to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and successful new year — the happiest and most successful ever. This year, unfortunately, does promise difficulties, but if you have the right attitude, you’ll come sailing through. What is that right attitude? The realization that when you place your life in His hands, nothing can go wrong in the end. As Divine Mother said to Master, “I am your stocks and bonds. What more dost thou need than Me?” You can be an inspiration and example to many people if, during difficulties, you hold a cheerful outlook, faith, devotion, and complete surrender to God’s will. I wish I could offer you buoyant expectations for the new year, but I can offer you thoughts that will give you peace of mind, courage, and security in your hearts. Keep a smile and you’ll find yourself always happy and secure. I’m giving a course of six lessons on this very subject in January and February of this year. If you can take this course you will understand more deeply what I am saying here. My love, blessings, and prayers for your constant happiness are always with you. love, swami kriyananda
