In the beginning all is hopeful as we prepare for something new
The journey still lays ahead, an ending that’s out of view
To start requires decision, the commitment is now made
Many distractions lie ahead, it is our duty to dissuade
Although others are around us, the path is ours alone
Seeking help along the way, we still must hold our own
Confirmation comes along the way to ensure a steady path
Adjusting for the good and bad, avoiding mistake’s wrath
The beginning is just a moment that quickly fades away
After that we only need to ensure we do not go astray
Beginnings are a fleeting moment that require a decision to ignite them into a journey. That path becomes our commitment to achieving some goal, This goal is about building a connection to our inner being so it is a path we must face alone. Once we have set our goal and started our journey everything else falls into place.
Tao Te Ching
"This is the moment of embarking.
All Auspicious signs are in place."
