the simplest New Years Resolution you can ever take

get thirsty and live every moment, live your life as much in the PRESENT moment as possible. remain thirsty with life and never stop exploring life's unending avenues.

Sufi mystical poet Rumi says:

Don't search for the water,
just get thirsty,
so that the water may arrive,

just as the cry of the
newborn babe
brings the mothers milk.

As Rumi also points out the fault of most of us who live life wasting much time and energy in looking here and there, hunting for some complex formula and long list we feel will buy us success; thus we delve into materialism to buy happiness and end up miserable.

These meaningless window-shoppers,
who idly ask, How much is that? Oh I’m just looking.
They handle a hundred items and put them down,
shadows with no capital.

But these walk into a shop,
and their whole lives pass suddenly in that moment,
in that shop.

Where did you go? Nowhere.
What did you take inside? Nothing much.

Instead of all nonsense meandering only if we could live more mindfully, moment by moment, most of our worries and sufferings would vanish like the clouds pass away against the constant flow of wind.
