The Sun sets on another day...

The Sun takes a similar path each day but rarely exactly the same path.  This is because our world is rotating constantly and traveling around the Sun and as such is never in the same place when the Sun sets. To many of us it seems as though the Sun always rises in the east and sets in the west. Some of us see that although the Sun rises in the east and sets in the west the path is not the same and as we stand in the same place each day the picture will be slightly different.  It is up to us to truly pay attention so that we may know where the Sun will set and in doing so know what is true.

I have a tendency of listening a lot to many people. Yesterday I listened to someone talking about a friend. As I listened I realized that they knew this friend very well but may not have known them at all.  I find this is often true as we walk through life. Many times preconceived notions of life guide us to places that perhaps we should not go. So which path should we take? How about we listen and not spend so much time talking. How about we pay attention to people and not spend so much time looking for what we think is true and in that perhaps we will find the truth. My friend is out there and perhaps some of the things that are said are true, perhaps they are not. I think it will  be up to me someday to make up my own mind and not for others to influence me for I know I will listen and in listening perhaps I will hear the truth and know what is real. Not that it matters, as in the end we have to live with ourselves and our values above all else.

So as the Sun sets on another day let's listen for a while, let's spend some time with each other and not decide how things are but hear and understand how things truly re and be supportive of the people we care about no matter what. After all we are only on this planet for a short time, maybe only 29000 sunsets. Isn't it best to enjoy every one?

Sleep sweet, love life, to the moon and back and the stars behind...

I'll be honest...

I have not always been the one that asked for peace, I have not always been the one who worked for peace, but I have always been the one who would step out and protect those around me so they could have peace. Often that was with whatever means were available and sometimes at my expense.

In spite of that peace does find a way. However quite often that way is not an easy way. Sometimes the road to peace can be a difficult path, and sometimes it can be a nearly impossible path. In the end, peace is a destination more than a journey in my opinion.

So as we look out over the sky and watch the sun set on another day, let's look for the destination of peace and realize that the path towards peace is sometimes a turbulent one. Sometimes the path to peace is less than peaceful but we can find ourselves at peace in the end. Isn't that the goal? Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy each moment peacefully and without conflict?

Enjoy life, sleep sweet, and love every moment so that all of us can find peace together and in the end bind happiness to that...

The Sun sets on another day...

No matter when the Sun is setting the colors are always there. Sometimes the colors are unreal and become covered by clouds and not so exciting. Sometimes the colors are very dim and suddenly an explosion of light and color covers us up with its maelstrom and we are overwhelmed with beauty.

This is true in life as well. Sometimes it seems as though everything is going well and suddenly we think it's not. The colors just aren't there. Sometimes we think things are going poorly and suddenly it's a fantastic day and it ends in an explosion of color and excitement.

The trick is to live every moment as though it would be the best possible moment you could have. In that we have the ability to see beyond that small slice and look at the bigger picture where happiness can exist independent of what life seems to be.

So as the Sun sets on another day take a moment and realize if the day looks bad it may turn out fantastic. And remember if the day looks fantastic it may not turn out as good but underneath there is something to be thankful for. No matter what everyday is yours to cherish.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a star every night...

The sun sets on another day...

Yesterday as my arm dangled helplessly in front of me I thought about control a lot. It is funny how so many people feel hey are in control. In control of their lives, other peoples lives and a host of items that can make a person's head spin like a runaway top. It is very rare we really have control of very much but ourselves. Controlling people is about as effective as controlling the sunset, now matter how hard you try, life goes on.

Don't fret, influence is another thing entirely and if we influence in a positive manner perhaps we will see positive results in the world. We can all move in a positive direction if we just remember to stay look at the bright side of every coin and skip the dark side, or better, eliminate it from our lives. Let go of your illusions and live your life well, enjoy each moment and we will all find people to enjoy the moment with us.

So as the sun sets on another day lets let our illusions of control go, and live our lives the best we can and have hope others come along for the ride.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a bright star, someone will be wishing on it with you...
