If, in the next year…
… we have to spend a sleepless night, may we enjoy the rare opportunity to watch the sun rising.
…we have to deal with a health problem, may we learn to understand our body signs.
…we cry, may the tears come like the rain that fertilizes dreams.
… we get angry, may we comprehend the immense creative power of that energy, when channeled.
… we are forced to stop, may we know how to wait, like the seed that is never late and is never early to germinate.
… we find obstacles, may we take pride in feeling like students doing a test for an advanced level.
… we have a loss, may we discover strength in faith.
… we face unmannered people, may we remember Francis of Assisi and be instruments of Peace.
… we are instruments of Peace, may dreams, health, happiness, friendship, creativity, patience, victory, earnings and harmony come in addition.
… and may the year be good.
