Three things cannot be long hidden. The sun, the moon and the truth. Buddha Every morning when I wake up first thing I do is thank god for keeping me alive to experience another beautiful day. After that I slowly pull my curtains to see the sun rise. I watch how peacefully, steadily, warmly and in beautiful color sun come up. I learn a lot from sun and moon . They are my teachers, my guru. Have you ever imagined if there is no sun for a single day or a single moment? . What will happen? . Neither we survive nor a single creature.
Everyday sun rises with same pace, pride and dignity. Sometimes black clouds hover in the sky but sun rise. Sometimes harsh wind blows still sun rise. It appears in its own schedule smiling and giving its light to the world. Though there are many ups and down, suffering, struggle in life we need accept them and move on happily. Every day cannot be joyful but we need to smile and move ahead like a sun.
I am in Dubai these days. I feel lucky that I can see sun rise from my building. I am staying on a rented flat and this building is 45 stories . I live in the 15th floor from where every morning I greet sun or vice versa. Watching the sun rising melts my heart and tears in my eyes. Tears of joy. It makes me feel darkness is over. Sun makes me realize the truth of life i, e impermanence. Every day with the rising sun my life is shortening. Parents, children, husband, money, house, car etc they won’t last for ever. Everything is impermanence. So I need not to waste single time to practice Dharma.
Just a single sun can give so much to this world . Why can’t we human be like a sun ? Why can’t we love each other unconditionally? Why can’t we transcend the borders between traditions, between religions, ideologies and systems to come together as one ?
