Tao: Beginnings

Updated on October 16, 2013


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."
