if its happiness that we want...

the new year beckons us to start afresh,
not to waste our precious time, with fruitless endeavors, 
which brings us nothing but suffering...

if it is happiness, that we want, know that the fruits are born of the seeds we plant...

if it is happiness, that we want, start by avoiding violence in all forms
from the tone of our voice, to avoiding watching violence, to avoiding creating a demand for it...

if it is happiness, that we want, start by good actions, however small,
from the gentleness of your voice, to the generosity of your words, to the thoughtfulness of your actions...

if it is happiness, that we want, simplify our lives,
we don't need to be a slave to all these things, the more things, the more confusion...

if it is happiness, that we want, practice humility
it is a lot less stressful, and lets us listen more carefully...

wishing all my readers, friends, family a happy new year...thank you for all your support...
