Sunset Of Life


Strange how many people find sunset at end of day most beautiful, yet find sunset time of life most distressing. When we watch sunset, we know darkness is near, fast approaching. We also know that sun will rise tomorrow and new day will begin. There is great comfort in that truth. If we believe in way of Tao, we know that new journey is near. A new dawn approaches, a new beginning. There is great comfort in that truth too. Sunset is natural. Sun rises, crosses sky, and then sets. That is way of Tao. Yet in truth, sun only disappears from view of portion of world. Sun continues to glow elsewhere even though we do not see it. We will always exist in some form. Maybe sun one time, moon another, ocean another time. That is great excitement of next journey.
