To be traditional, I should say ‘Happy New Year 2015″ to all my blog readers.

This new year is supposed to mark the end of all those negative things that are associated with 2014, and the beginning of our new journey as travellers of time on earth. We are supposed to leave behind our emotional baggage and start anew. It is easier said than done of course. But we all must try because we are what we think. Having said that we should not be out of touch with reality in helping us to feel good through thinking. Now there is a thin line between being normal and mentally abnormal. A psychiatric test would be helpful.

Our thoughts should not override our ability and capability. It should consider achievability (is there such a word?). If you think of something you are not likely to achieve, you will end up being depressed. There will be time when you should accept a situation and move on. People use defence mechanisms to stay sane. People refer to the so-called higher power, read God,  to keep calm. We upload our troubles and emotional distress to God and then believe that He will help us somehow and feel a lot better. We then leave it to Him to show us the way. Hah… people are going to say that I am advocating religions in this posting;  oh no, not so fast, Speedy Gonzales!

Intelligent application of FAITH goes a long way in our life. It is a facilitator to our physical and spiritual journey. (Net image)

I believe you must have consistent faith in something in order to navigate well in your life. Those with no faith are bound to act in manners detrimental to themselves and those around them. But you could argue that those suicide bombers who are faithful to their religion and yet they kill themselves and innocent people do not fall into this category of faith-adherents. Yet, we know very little of this type as there are bound to be some abnormal factors which cause them to kill and be killed.

My point is for us to function amid all sorts of problems, difficulties,obstacles and challenges, we must have consistent faith and support  to deal with the reality.

In the last month of 2014 we heard of news reports of horrible  murders committed by those who knew and loved the victims. In Australia, a mother brutally killed her seven children including a relative and in Canada a man killed his relatives and then himself out of depression. It could have been helplessness, loneliness and faithlessness which drove them to taking lives of their loved ones.

For the new year, those of us who have faith must renew it and those who have been without it all these years might want to acquaint yourselves with it.

Let’s welcome the New Year 2015 with open arms
