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."
