Joy in beginnings

Day 2. #pilgrimagetojoy

As I watched the sun rise this morning, I was reminded of the joy in new beginnings. Joy in the possibilities, the potential, the hope, the promise of something new. The joy in choosing a new way of being, a new practice, a thought. We have this opportunity each day we are granted another day, another hour, another minute another, second of life.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu in The Book of Joy say it this way:

No dark fate determines the future. We do. Each day and each moment, we are able to create and re-create our lives and the very quality of human life on our planet. This is the POWER we wield.
