Happiest of New Years

An ancient source gives us
contemporary advice for any year. 
We like to call them:  
Mantras for the New Year

In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.
In action, watch the timing.

~ Tao Te Ching ~
(Translation by Gia-Fu Feng and Jane English)
