The sun sets….

The sun sets on another day…

There is never a finality in a sunset. Instead we now know that as the sun sets it rises is another place and there is a promise that tomorrow the sun will rise for us as well.

Imagine thousands of years ago when there was not such a knowledge, when the sun rising and setting was just magic, and something to be revered, worshiped, or feared. Then we feared the unknown and we’re limited by our understanding. Now we know and can be happy with the constant knowledge that we will see the sunrise tomorrow and not need to worry.  

So as the Sun sets on another day remember that knowledge can dispelled darkness and faith can move mountains but only if we have them, so learn each day, live each day, and be part of the solutions in the world.

I have faith, and hopefully some knowledge, and believe each day is worth everything we put into it, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and believe in truth, to the moon and back…

 

Wasted time…

Ever notice how you are always hearing about wasted time. People say that video games are a waste of time. People say that television is a waste of time. People say that Facebook the internet and a host of other items are just a waste of time. In life is there truly a waste of time? If we learn, or if we experience, or even if we feel something new is it not worth the time to do it? In my opinion it is always best to do something and if it is something enjoyable to not set it aside long as it does not hurt people, infringe on people, or cause undue stress on yourself. After all we only get one shot at life isn’t it best to experience everything that we can? It is, after all, our time too. (But keep it in perspective and do the right stuff as well)

So as the Sun sets on another day let’s consider enjoying our time and as the Sun comes up and the Sun Goes Down remember that nothing will change its path. Like the inevitable sunrise and sunset we should inevitably move towards living a full life with happiness, passion, and love at its center. 

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish every day for all the things that will make you happy…

Guiding light…

The sun sets on another day…

Feeling poetic today….

There is a light that shines
shines over each one of us
a light that gives us time
a light that build trust
 
There is a light that shines
it will never wane
hope for yours and mine
and never casts blame
 
We need to see light
and we need to dream
because there is no bad sunset
no matter how it seems
 
Sleep sweet, love life, and live every day like crazy…
 
 

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…

 

Peace will prevail…

 

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…

A fight for color…

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… 

A lesson in control

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…

(Oh, and I am OK the cat is out of the box)

Dead or alive..you’re reading with me….

The sun sets on another day…

Today I am not writing this post, I wrote it Thursday night, and set it to post tomorrow so it would seem like today but it was actually done yesterday. At some point today I was in the deep sleep that only anesthetic brings. Hopefully a deep peace will come over me and I will be happy and fulfilled and my arm will be repaired. Funny huh? Right now I am a literal Schrodinger’s Cat, existing in a vaporous state until I post again tomorrow or have enough presence of mind to do so later tonight. Fun huh?

As the sun sets tonight, and this post is set to be at exactly sunset (No more virtual time travel talk it will give us a headache), let’s be thankful. Thankful for those people who make our lives

Tomorrow the sun will rise…

I missed the part where the sun sets and does not come up, the world is horrible, and people are always just plain bad. Honestly, the  number of people in the world that worry about “stuff” is staggering. Worse, the number of people who try to bring down those of us that are looking for positives and that inner power that they have a hard time feeling is staggering as well (Good word staggering). Those people try to hide the sun, make the world horrible, and try to make people feel bad or just be bad.

There is hope, and it is in every one of us. No, it does not involve you wearing a billboard and telling people your way is the right way, nor does it involve preaching from a pulpit and making people see your point even if you have to hammer it into them, it doesn’t even require wearing a tutu across town. (Would look bad with my legs anyway). Instead it is very straight forward, maybe even easy: Show people you can be happy no matter what, and if you can, try to spread it.

A look into my mind…ooops

For those of you that read my post today without the benefit of my second edit, ooops! I hit the wrong button! Usually I edit several times before I release, in this case I thought I had not released, but I did. Ooops. 

It reminds me of a poem, but I won’t recite it to bore you to tears, instead, how about something that is not a sunset? Also you may notice I now have the home page go straight to the sunsets. I appreciate the suggestion.
