The sun sets on another day…
There are lots of different permutations of the sunset. From magical lines, to flowing colors. As the sun sets there is sometimes just a moment where the horizon changes for a moment as the sun passes out of sight. In this moment there may be a green flash. I have seen it 3 times now and it was made famous in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. You can see an actual green flash here. It is not something you see often and as you watch it, it is hard not to think of something magical, like Shangri-La. So is this green flash a portal into another world, or do we have to find our way there on our own?
(Insert other questions here if you like, but I am going down this strange path tonight)
I would like think that our pathway into a better world is simple, we find a way to make it ourselves. No green flash that gives us a door, but instead another option. Now that sometimes means changing the entire world, but perhaps not. Maybe we just need to find a way to become happier ourselves. As creatures driven by intellect and passion we need to take a moment and find a way to use more than just what we see, but also find what we feel and make it positive. Rather than asking questions let’s gives the answer and the answer is we want to find happiness together and set aside the lesser things, in favor of better days, and positive times.
Is this always the answer, well, not always, but it is a good start and it will take us forward to a better place if we let it.
So as the sun sets on another day. Question an answer and in the process make some nonsense sometime. (The actual song is pretty fun) Find a different way of seeing the world, and watch for the green light at sunset and perhaps you will be transported to a paradise, but if not, find a way to create paradise yourself, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, smile, and enjoy the night…
