Theosophical New Year

Dear One and All,

About 3am, Wed.  January 4th is this planet's annual nearest
approach to the sun.  It is also the date HPB suggested for a
"festival to be held by those who study ancient Wisdom."

As HPB put it: "Let no one imagine that it is a mere fancy, the
attaching of importance to the birth of the year.  The earth
passes through its definite phases and man with it; and as a day
can be colored, so can a year...  Those who form their wishes now
will have added strength to fulfill them consistently.

"Every man or woman is endowed, more or less, with a magnetic
personality, which when helped by a sincere, and especially by an
intense and indomitable *will* -- is the most effective of magic
levers placed by Nature in human hands -- for woe or weal.  Let
us then, Theosophists, use that will to send a sincere greeting
and wish of good luck for the New Year to every living creature
under the sun -- enemies and relentless traducers included.  Let
us try and feel especially kindly and forgiving to our foes and
persecutors, honest or dishonest."
