Before midnight on Winter Solstice write down on paper all of the grudges you have about other people, all of the events you are resentful about, and then burn them on a fire. This represents those past uncompleted events that could become barriers in the new year.
In the new year sit down and visualise yourself in the centre of your environment, family, work etc. Taking one context at a time, ask what would you do to make the space work in a better way. Make your own mind up without listening to any external advice or internal voices in your head from past authority figures. Then based on your vision of what the whole space needs, put it into action.
It is not what do you need to get, it is what can you contribute to the whole.
