There goes last year but the new one does not come so easily, eh? Why; Because you are stuck like an oyster in your raft, in your rigid shape, in your old self, in your old time. And so the new self cannot emerge. The last year puts heavy pressure on you. And if the new self does not emerge, the new year does not come for you. And what to do? Do as Odysseus, follow the instructions, and get off your raft! Get rid of your old self, your old time! Do you want to be saved? Take it off the raft!
