New Year's Arrival Offers Chance For A Fresh Start

Abigail Van Buren on

DEAR ABBY: This year, no resolutions, only some guidelines. The Holy Vedas say, Man has subjected himself to thousands of self-inflicted bondages. Wisdom comes to a man who lives according to the true eternal laws of nature.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is doubt, faith;


Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
