New Year’s Meditation: Every Moment Is A New Beginning …

… every moment is a new beginning, every handshake a promise. I know that every quest implicates the other, just as every word can become prayer. If life is not a celebration, why remember it? If life — mine or that of my fellow man — is not an offering to the other, what are we doing on this earth?
— Elie Wiesel from Open Heart

Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.
— Albert Einstein

A new beginning! We must learn to live each day, each hour, yes, each minute as a new beginning, as a unique opportunity to make everything new. Imagine that we could live each moment as a moment pregnant with new life. Imagine that we could live each day as a day full of promises. Imagine that we could walk through the new year always listening to a voice saying to us: “I have a gift for you and can’t wait for you to see it! Imagine!
— Henri Nouwen from Here and Now: Living in the Spirit

Look, whatever you do in life, remember, think higher and feel deeper. It cannot be bad if you do that.
— Elie Wiesel (Interview with Oprah Winfrey on Super Soul Sunday)
