Wishing you a new year filled with the love of God

When a year ago I was greeting 2008, I made three wishes none of which came true. We sometimes wish for things that might not be good for us or things whose time might not have arrived yet. Either way, I trust that God provides what is right for us but it takes faith and certitude to discern and accept it. The past year has been a very big test in detachment for me. Thankfully, despite all the things I lost (or maybe because of them), I’ve been gaining a new sense of self rooted in the belief that I was created noble and was given a gift that no one can take away from me:

For every one of you his paramount duty is to choose for himself that on which no other may infringe and none usurp from him. Such a thing — and to this the Almighty is My witness — is the love of God, could ye but perceive it.
(Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 261)

I wish for all of you noble souls who read my musings, a healthy and happy 2009 — a new year filled with the love of God!
