the world is always held without effort; the moment there is effort, the world is beyond holding.
ineffablenoetic: For those who celebrate New Years by resolution:
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy,
the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative, and creation,
there is one elementary truth,
the ignorance of which kills ideas and splendid plans:
that the moment one definitely commits oneself,
the Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision,
raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings
and material assistance,
which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
i have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

May you be so resolved, and blest, each and every day hence, that cometh to pass.
