A Fresh Start

Ready to start something new? There is creativity and power in a fresh start. That’s why my writing practice is focused on a monthly re-boot. There is a quotation about this, about the power of dedicating yourself to a task and making a strong beginning, that I see repeated not only by authors but by people of other disciplines and walks of life too.

Here are a few examples:

“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” – Paulo Coelho

“The important point is to make a definite beginning somewhere and as soon as possible—Now. The moment such a serious beginning is made forces begin to gather round the centre of endeavour and take the aspirant forward towards his goal, slowly at first, but with increasing speed until he becomes so absorbed in the pursuit of his ideal that time and distance cease to matter for him. And one day he finds that he has reached his goal and looks back with a kind of wonder at the long and tedious journey which he has completed in the realm of Time while all the time he was living in the Eternal.” – From The Science of Yoga, The Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali, translated from Sanskrit by I.K. Taimni
