If you live in Dunedin, you know all about the glorious sunsets. If you've never visited Dunedin, it may be time to plan a trip. People gather each evening at piers or little waterside parks around town to watch the wonder.
I never tire of these scenes. Weaver Park pier is a mile from my home and we bike over after dinner many evenings each week.
It's a way to ground after a busy or stressful day. It's a way of reminding ourselves of the good, the true, and the beautiful.
“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.” Thich Nhat Hanh
The sun always rises and sets, despite the darkness, despite the clouds, despite the chaos in our world. Witnessing the sunrises and sunsets can give a sense of renewal.
Sunsets touch something deep inside, giving a sense of peace and hope.
The birds, too, glory in the rising and setting sun! Yes, I have found this to be true. "Even wild things sit in absolute and total reverence for the fading of a day." Tyler Knott Gregson
Reverence opens us to gratitude and respect, to love and caring which are deeply important ideals at this time in a culture that seems to be reeling.
Healing is possible. Acceptance is possible. Love is possible. Transformation is possible. Sunsets remind me of all this.
Quiet your racing mind, even for a moment, and feel a heart that is good, that is peace, that is love, that is connected to all. Move from that place.
“A setting sun still whispers a promise for tomorrow.” Jeb Dickerson
