New Beginnings..

As Barack Obama is sworn in later today as the first black president of the United States of America, two words popped into my mind. 'New Beginnings'...
A very special day indeed for us all - worldwide.
I found a couple of poems by Australian poet - James Allen, which I felt were appropriate for this day in history..

Mind is the master power that molds and makes, And we are Mind, and evermore we take The tool of thought, and shaping what we will,Bring forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills,We think in secret, and it comes to pass -Our world is but our looking glass.- James Allen

The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.-- James Allen
