New Year comes, four seasons are consecutively passed. The start of each season is the end of another, and the end of other season is the start of the next.
In the universe, many things have birth, adulthood, oldness and finally the stage of death. Without doubt, for everything, young hood is the stage of being fresh. By reaching to the young hood, the beauty of human is doubled from his childhood. In this stage, humans experience some immediate changes in their heights, weights, shapes, eyes, skin, bones and muscles. Every thing gets new and becomes more beautiful, but the essential thing for the promotion of human and his personality is his inner- thoughts, feelings, manners and attitudes. In addition, the inner of human is the key for living a better life here, and to earn a place in the eternal life of hereafter.
If you are physically handsome and good-looking, but your heart and inner is defective then you are like an attractive fruit whose inside is filthy. These types of people are like a golden sculpture without soul.
Inner of human is the key for making both community and self-personality. This is the character and quality of human to have new and brilliant thoughts, passions, honesty and good attitudes.
If New Year comes, and you reach young hood, everything gets new, new things are discovered; but if your thoughts are still old and worthless then everything including the New Year, your adultness, and such discoveries are useless and vain.
In the world, only those nations are advanced whose thoughts and opinions are new, and utilize their knowledge and intellect,.
Every spring begets plants, and plants serve the human. Fruitful trees provide fruit; fruitless trees give the human shielding from the hot sun, and clear the air up. Deserts become green and make pastures for animals. These are the things which prove the adultness of the new spring.
Years are passed to some humans, their bodies are changed just by growing, but their spirituality remains old, still they haven’t taken a step towards their new life. Their thoughts and ideas are still useless. By coming every New Year, we should also make ourselves new. It means our physical and spiritual structures should be in relation to each other for example: along with our body weights, our thoughts should also fly huge; by being beautified our shapes, our ethics should also get beauty. By getting to the young hood, everything should get fresh, for the New Year presents new messages, too. Happy New Year to those who get changes day by day, and through improving their thoughts, they serve their selves, families and communities.
