The path…

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…
