New Beginnings, a Poem, Invocation, & Invitation for 2012




Another year,

another day

and the dark slowly

gives way to

in its annual

cycle into the

light of day.

We are on an

ascending ladder

to Jacob's

Bright House

as we

dance midstream

between the

light and dark

of old times


new beginnings.

We who have

committed to

walk and live

the Buddha Way,

the Christ Way,

the Tao Way

stand together

and invest

in the service

of Namaste

with Gandhi's


And we invite

and encourage you

to join this circle

of shared commitments

and make 2012

a year of generosity

and compassion.

We are one family

and we owe one another

such a great loyalty.
