The sun sets on another day...

The sun set slowly this evening, not because it set truly faster or slower than any other day but because it seemed slower.

Funny how time is, and funny how I end up talking about it occasionally. Time can go fast, or time can go slow, but in reality, time just goes, it is we who go fast or go slow independent of time itself. 

I find that thinking about time is one of the most interesting and awe inspiring retrospectives I can do. Time has gone so many ways for me in my life. I have stretched out some days to last forever, and lost others in what seemed like second, only to look back and see it was so much more. 

So what, right? Well, time is the same whether we like ti or not, and somewhere along the way we have to grab onto time and squeeze out every moment we can. After all, if we only get 29000 sunsets, do we really want to miss a single one? Do we really want to set aside any moment as less than precious?

So as the sun sets on another day. Take a second, well, stop, take a minute, hmm, maybe take an hour and enjoy that hour, and the one after and the one after. Shed the bonds that hold you and start to enjoy life all you can, and along the way, find some simple happiness, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and well, pay attention it is going on now....

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun set a golden path was laid out to the edge of forever, I watched the sky wondering if we could return to tomorrow, or better, find that tomorrow is yesterday, and all of this happened in the blink of an eye.

Yes, for those who don't know I was in a bit of a Star Trek mood today. It was a day filled with revelations, and a promise for a better world. I have to say though, that every better world starts with a need to be more, and know more, and a wish that each day is the best possible day for everyone, and not just someone or anyone.

Confused yet? Don't be, the day is a day and we should all be the best we can be, not because we have to be but because we want to be. After all the world will change for the better when we know at the core of who we are, that we are better and we all want our sunsets to be the best they can be, right?

So as the sun sets on this interesting day, sit back, enjoy a moment, perhaps two, and in the process think about a better world. A world with you in it where we all can be happy, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and hold on to your heart...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun sets waves of emotion can wash across us as the sheer wonder of the moment takes over.

Tonight I hope you...

Feel the emotion of the sunset wash across you like waves on a beach
Feel the warmth of those who care about you
Ignore the feelings of those who don't
Smile at the power of the moment
and laugh from the depth of your heart

It is an easy request, but mostly I hope you laugh, and laughing makes the world an easier place to see, to love, to feel and to ensure each and every day. Laugh, love, and live, and then do it some more each day not because of anything anyone says or writes, but because it is the way you want to feel.

So as the sun sets on another day, laugh love and live some more. While you do so, live for today and squeeze every awesome moment out, and keep on laughing as the night closes in. After all, there is always something funny in the world, and we just need to see it and know that it is there to make us laugh a little, or maybe a little more. Laugh hard, and play hard and maybe the world will be a better place each day.

Sleep sweet, love, and laugh no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset was going to be less than perfect, a clear night with little going on, and then, in the moments before it set, a series of clouds bought out color and fire and a lot more. The sunset became a dance between light and darkness, and once again, even though I did not feel good, it was good.

I thought to myself today why I try so hard to see the sunset each night. Sure, it is beautiful, amazing, awesome, stunning and a thousand other adjectives that only make you feel like the world is a wonderful place but I realized it was something different.

As a monumentally massive person who is very tall I spend the days looking down on people, not because of any reason other than most people are small. I guess in the end they are not small, they are just smaller than me. As I considered it, each time I look at the sunset, or a mountain, a valley, or so much more, I am no longer the largest, I am small if only for a moment, and I can feel at peace for that second.

No, this does not mean I want to be normal, or smaller, or anything of that vein, but instead, I just want to take a moment and have a little peace. Someone once told me that peace was at the center of everything, we went our separate ways and though I see peace as the center, my world became different than theirs, and peace has a far different meaning to me. They saw peace as purely spiritual, but I see peace as far more than just spiritual. I am sure they would say, "There is no more" but as each day passes I find the boundaries of existence widening, the world becoming a bigger place, and each moment becoming a reflection of something far bigger than just spiritual, but instead a blend of a number of things, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical and more. It is this moment that makes life a little better at sunset.

No, I am not going to go over the top and become a guru or dress like Mike Myers in the Love Guru, but I am going to say sunset is amazing, all the time.

So as the sun sets on another day, find those things that mean something to you, hold on to them, feel them, and as I said earlier today, "...be willing to watch  with your dying breath and still be amazed." Hmm, that came out depressing. Was not meant to be. 

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy it no matter what...
