"W hat you plant is what you harvest.  The richness of your rewards is determined by the greatness of the effort you put in." That is a quote from Brahma Kumaris.


All of us want to harvest well—in our farms, in our work, in various aspects of our life. As we start the New Year, most of us are hoping that our harvest this year will be better than last year's. But what we shall harvest in the future depends on what we have planted or will plant now. Indeed, the future is created now.


This principle applies also to the attainment of our societal goals, particularly the attainment of peace in our country. We have to plant seeds of peace that will enable us to attain a peaceful future for our country. It applies also to environmental caring. We have to plant trees, more trees, especially now that we face the risk of global warming.


Planting is not a trivial task. Have you ever tried to plant anything—even just in your backyard? If you have not done so, we hope you will add "Plant one or more trees or plants" to your List of New Year Resolutions.


Planting a seed or a cutting and nurturing it afterwards is a challenging, fulfilling, and enjoyable activity. It is also a good practice for planting seeds of hope and peace, which is an even more challenging task.
