The Path of Possibilities

“It’s not a smooth, straight forward road that leads us to a place of change,

but more a winding, jagged path that trips us up and offers options, often strange…

to us or those around us who are baffled by the choice.

Yet trusting just your instincts while you listen to your inner voice,

can be the most rewarding gift by holding still and strong.

Tho’ sometimes it is slow and painful, thinking it has all gone wrong.

Steadfast and consistent, are the little tricks I’ve found can work.

Instead of watching fear and desolation creeping where it should not ever lurk,

‘round each and every corner and in every little crack,

distracting and confusing every single hope we seem to lack.

So, keep those thoughts and dreams a movin’ forward as you find your pace,

and possibilities will blossom, blessing you with hope and grace.”

~ Andrew Pacholyk MS LAc.


“This purposeful reason…

is enough to change the direction of your life.

It is the spark that ignites the lucid dreams of wanting.

Yet, without striking the match, further efforts will go undone.

It is not enough to desire…

for without effort, intention stays just that…

an unfulfilled dream.”

~ Andrew Pacholyk MS LAc.


“Our weakest link…

points of instability.

Seeing change as impossibility.

 Yet, it is the unfolding of our strong resolve; 
we find when we dig deep to solve…

the problem we’re about to face…

to shake up and reveal to us,

the brand-new person it will make.”

~ Andrew Pacholyk MS LAc.

“Pearls of Light by Andrew Pacholyk is a compilation of poems inspired by the author’s personal experiences... This book contains teachings on self-love, confidence, character development, and lessons on love, aging, happiness, and capturing life’s most essential moments. Read Pearls of Light to learn everything you might need to know about life. Andrew Pacholyk’s Pearls of Light is, without a doubt, one of my favorite books… This book has enlightened me on my life perspectives and made me feel grateful for the wonderful and unpleasant things life has given me. “The Winds of Worry” is my favorite poem because I could relate to the meaning behind it. It brilliantly emphasized the value of replacing worry with happy thoughts, making me recognize the significance of one’s mindset in one’s growth… I can’t imagine how difficult it was to compose an entire book full of life lessons that are really helpful, but Andrew did it as beautifully as only a talented poet like himself could. This was well worth the read. Excellent work!”

As I journey towards enlightenment, I discover that with age, I grow more aware of my own serendipitous essence. Maybe we all experience this epiphany at some point, only realizing it when it truly matters. It’s difficult to tell for sure. One thing I can say with certainty is that my younger self was far from sharing wise quotes and insightful tips – back then, I was merely a crude tool. Indeed, wisdom seems to accompany age. Each stumble we take and every sacrifice we make only serves to deepen our understanding and bring light to essential truths.

Now, at 60…

the phrase “youth is wasted on the young” rings truer than ever. Despite feeling young at heart, being offered a senior discount can be a sobering reminder of my actual age – more than just a slap in the face, it’s a wake-up call to reality. Perhaps I truly am in the “winter” of my existence. Nevertheless, I’ll continue embracing my inner eternal summer where I’ve always found solace.
 Joy has continuously played a significant role in shaping my life. With an inherently positive outlook (for the most part), I have allowed the Universe to guide me along its path.

Now, I am eager…

to share the extraordinary life lessons and secrets I’ve accumulated over the years, diving into this final quarter-century chapter without hesitation or remorse. This book serves as both an educational resource and a participatory workbook designed for interaction—so join me in this enlightening journey. These words represent a collection of experiences and emotions that have deeply impacted me – from moments of happiness or adversity, praise or resentment, love or loss. My hope is that they offer you fresh perspectives or empower you in your personal journey of self-discovery and growth.

“Andrew Pacholyk shares valuable life lessons in Pearls of Light: Passion, Poetry and Positive Affirmations. The main element of this work is poetry, but there are also short anecdotes, reflections, affirmations, and open-ended questions to help us understand ourselves better. The author’s purpose is to empower readers and he seeks to inspire us to be better people and learn to express our feelings. The book offers an optimistic perspective that encourages individuals to strive toward being their best. I liked the healthy values taught by Andrew Pacholyk. He writes about the need for unconditional love, based on understanding and humility. He also emphasizes the importance of good deeds. He does not ignore topics such as anger and finding a balance between our lives, thoughts, and emotions. His poems have a personal touch and are supported by insights and advice, which add significant value. I loved Pearls of Light because of the level of attention to detail. This work is ideal for building self-confidence and focusing on a path to happiness and balance.”

~ “When we give up control and go with the flow, we may be surprised to learn just how little we truly had in the first place.”

“The joys of life are always in a comparative relationship to our fears.”

~ “Happiness is not a perfect life. Happiness is weighing what brings you satisfaction against what doesn’t. It’s what you choose to focus on that determines your contentment.”

“Andrew Pacholyk, again inspires his readers in a well-thought out work of passion, poetry, and positive affirmations. Using his years of experience as a natural healer, athlete, and world-traveler, Pacholyk laces these talents together and produces a relatable journey of self-love and new discoveries. His poetry is lyrical and beats with the rhythm of a clock. I enjoyed his snappy insights on our emotions, his stargazing child, and his poetic look at passing on. I can’t imagine the creativity that fills his mind. By looking at the table of contents, you can see how he takes us on a journey from the unconscious to the conscious. This is a lavish and heartfelt trip that echos in his other books, especially, Barefoot. I highly recommend picking up a copy of Pearls of Light. It not only offers practical advise on topics such as love, finding happiness, and following your path, but is a great reminder of the self-confident and empowered souls we really are.”

The Angst of Love

“The angst of love’s befallen me.It’s hard to think, to find my thoughts.

I feel as if a blanket wet with snow is lying long on top.

I’m in a daze and without root…as if I’m simply drawing lots…

to choose in which direction that my happenstance provides.

Is this the one or one of many, strolling through my eager life?

How crucial can this next step be to invest the time in them… in me.

These times in life, I’m so unclear, I move through season’s tides.

Perhaps a better sleep tonight, Will help to ease my foolish mind.”

~ Andrew Pacholyk MS L.Ac

The Loot We Pay

“Ducats, chavo, wampum, stash…we’re always spending so much cash.

Chippies, moola, chicken scratch…I just let go of another batch.

It went to rent, it went to food, it went for things I’m sure, who knew?

Fortune, bank roll, kale, wealth, my bank account is in poor health.

I’m spending pittance, petty cash, whatever’s left I feed the cat.

Long greens, cabbage, pocket change,

I’ve spent it all, I’m broke again.

I guess I have to wait until…

More lolly comes and fills my till.”

~ Andrew Pacholyk MS LAc

“Far away from inner thoughts, and all the stressors of the day…

I escape to where my heart is calm and find myself a better way…

to deal with things that grow and form and cause me drama in my life.

Which bruises every bit of ego. finding fault, and causing strife.

I know it’s just not where I run to that solves the problems and mistakes,

it’s how I learn to handle things that make the best escape.”

In Repose

“The calm and gentle rain befalls outside the window pane.

It taps away just like a clock. It’s keeping time – a gentle pace is playing on my brain.

It’s like a hypnotizing rhythm, swaying me both to and fro.

For all I need now is a soft and soothing wind to gently blow.

To rock me into calm repose and send me off to sleep,

where I can find a path to take me further and more deep…into a place where I can go…

 that offers up more peace of mind, my body still at ease.

I drift away in lost repose,

where dreams will never cease.”

So, This Is Love

“You look at me like no one else ever has.

Your pools of love draw me in.

Your eyes tell the story.

Welled with tears of joy, almost as if you can’t believe you found the one who could love you like no other. 

Who understands…Who goes with the flow…Who is there when you need them most…

 Your silent approval is obvious from the smile you can’t contain.

Again, shaking your head in disbelief.

 So, this is love.”
