The sun sets on another day...

Proverbs tells us "A person's wisdom yields patience; it is to one's glory to overlook an offense"

Many other sayings suggest similar. So where do we get wisdom? Some people feel it is from age, but I know many people far older than I that are not wise. Some say it is from faith, but whose faith gives wisdom and where do we define such? I feel it is from experience, where understanding gives way to common ground and allows a person to see beyond themselves, beyond a situation and instead to the center of an issue, and in that we find wisdom and patience.

One things we do not see from wisdom is arrogance, A wise person can see their worth and not need to define it, where a lesser person would define themselves for themselves. In my opinion it is too often true that those who feel they are wise, are not, and those that are wise, well, they are not out for personal gain but instead are defining others, sacrificing for those that need it, and perhaps sacrificing of themselves when it seems they shouldn't. The wise person may see a bigger picture.

I remember a Steven Seagal movie long ago where an elder is talking to the Steven Seagal character and says he is a bear. Seagal's character replies he is not a bear, but instead he is a mouse. The elder says that is exactly what a bear would say.

I have a friend who is quiet and reserved all the time, he is ultra intelligent and I think if he ever went on Jeopardy he would amaze the world and slaughter the competition. (Except maybe in movies). He is one of the most patient listeners I have ever known, and never forces his knowledge or experience, but instead  passively listens, and makes a difference by gently guiding and understanding. He must be patient, after all, he puts up with my silliness. It is in people like him that the future can be defined, for they will listen and hear, and perhaps understand more than politicians and zealots, knowing a larger picture, and perhaps leading us there.

Sorry, for the long treatise.

So as the sun sets on another day, seek experience to gain wisdom, live truth and not a lie, tell the truth whenever you are asked, and remember, there is always another side.

Sleep sweet, and be aware of you, because you are special.

The sun sets on another day...

The sun and moon give us a lot, combine it with the rotation of the earth, gravity and thousands other variables, and you get the wind. I studied Chaos for a while and learned how complex life can truly be as so many things affect each other. Chaos is used a lot in weather as the slightest change can change an ecosystem more than slightly.

So too it is true with us. We have many limits, physical, mental, emotional, and a lot of them are self imposed, while some are not. It is a daily struggle to determine ones own limits and abilities, or a daily delight. Perhaps we need to strongly consider how limitless we truly are as we consider our limits. (ha ha, too many uses of the word limit)

Maybe just maybe we should all take a moment and consider how many people we affect each day and what effect we have on them, then consider our limits again, and overcome them.

I realize this is just touching the tip of the iceberg, perhaps someday I will write a huge treatise on it as there is so much to consider. Perhaps.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider the limits of the wind, your limits, and how you can truly become the limitless person you truly are in life.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be limitless...

The sun sets on another day...

Every wonder how so many days can just be great! It's easy, days are great because we make them great! Days are amazing because we make them amazing, and in the end, every day may be the best day you will ever have if you just let go, open your heart, and enjoy the moment. So rather than spew forth a lot of words that will say the same thing, why don't we just believe in ourselves, believe in our creator, believe in love, and make today the most amazing day it can be, and make tomorrow even better.

Stay up a while, enjoy the moment, then sleep sweet, love life, and live tomorrow as if it is the most amazing day ever...

The sun sets on another day...

You know, the sun has been worshiped in a lot of cultures just because it is there, and always dependable, rising and setting and being far more imposing than any other item we face. Or something like that. We all go through our own spiritual journeys in life, and understand what we understand, do what we think is right, have passion, and find a way and for some reason it is not always as dependable.

I read a quote once and finally found it that said “In the beginning we seek truth. In the middle we seek reason. In the end we seek peace.” (LM Browning) and I agree with this quote for most people, but would't it be a more fulfilling life if we sought truth through our passion to know, seek reason for our passion to understand, and seek peace for our passion to be free. Perhaps we can even take it further and put all these into one, should't we seek the best and most powerful for all people including ourselves through the moderating deployment of our passion for the world? Is that so hard? Is it so hard to say I am passionate about X each and every day and will work to show it and be true to myself? As in "I am passionate about TRUTH each and every day and will endeavor to find and be a part of truth always" How about "I am passionate about "insert your favorite name here" each and every day and there will never be a day they doubt my passion for them"? Is that too much to ask? Should we abolish the words, "I was passionate yesterday, so its not that big of a deal that I am not today."?

As we seek out our spiritual journey perhaps we need to spend some time looking deep into what we are passionate about, and determine our journey that is right for us, because as the sun rises and sun sets, it is predictable. We are not. We are an interesting race guided by a series of electrical impulses that are as diverse as the sky is endless. I digress.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider where you are going in life. Not just as a physical being, but where your mind is spiritually, where you want it to be, and how you want to get there, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, dream of enlightenment and make it real, and love life each morning when you awaken with fresh eyes...
