'As the New Year's Eve approaches we all are preparing ourselves to receive the New Year and celebrate the finish of the old and the beginning of the New. We have all learned during our lives what this celebration really means: basically drinking more, over-eating, having an excuse to do what ever we want with no limit and doing all these meaningless things that we did not do the rest of the days in the year. Following all these, the next day, comes a heavy, low and dark state of being and deep tiredness with a feeling of vanity. This is the way that the collective unconsciousness works inside human beings during the celebration of the New Year's Eve but also in other similar celebrations. Of course in a spiritual community all the celebrations should be held completely differently. First of all one has to be in a higher state, to be in the state of prayer much more than any other moment or day. Some people who follow the path of consciousness they willingly do not celebrate this day but instead they pray, make fasting or meditate and do every practice that they normally do in the daily life in order to erase this program of the unconscious New Year's Eve night of having fun. Some others don't do this but instead they do rituals during the whole night. What are these rituals? When one enters in deep meditative state or state of prayer and during the whole night consciously starts remembering what he has done the previous year and tries to clean inside of him and heal all the unconscious things he has done realizing more and more his biggest weaknesses or mistakes. He then enters in state of prayer in order to build inside the determination and motivation in order to develop the upcoming year the best part in him, the highest qualities that he finds and which exist inside of him. In such inner state the person passes the whole New year's Eve doing a revision of his life or a shamanic journey. Of course most important of all is not the exact ritual or way you choose to celebrate but basically to remain in very high state of consciousness and not become unconscious following the herd. The most evolved people though who are free from all these programs, in these days of celebration, are in a mystical unity with the Universe cultivating very big intentions for the world, for the people, for the spiritual work and for serving the Divine Power. They create new paths for the transformation of the whole humanity, for the future of the children and for happiness and harmony in our planet. Of course in order to celebrate in such a way one needs to be in such a level of consciousness and feel the necessity to do so in his being. In such a state a man cannot think about himself or his personal achievements but instead he feels the flow of the Divine Will and the good of all people as he is motivated by unconditional love. And this is the difference between the social and the spiritual celebration of the special days.
Wishes for a wonderful New Year to ALL!!
