The sun just started rising. Someone, some where is watching and sees all the colors that emanate through space and across time. The oranges and yellows, the whites and blues and purples and reds. The majestic beauty that brings forth light and life. Trees and flowers and foliage of all kinds begin to soak up the life-giving rays. Animals, birds and fish set their triggers to start the daily routine of searching for food for themselves or their offspring. Some of them use the time to wind down their nocturnal hunt and ritual and look for a kind place to rest. All of the glory of the universe peaks its eyes above the horizon for the knowing to see.
Some where there’s an animal or a bird or a fish that doesn’t see the sun rising. they may be waiting in a desert as the sun over head is scorching the sands. waiting for the terrible heat to fade into sunset. The tiny rabbit or bird nestled in its den or nest hoping to survive the predators lurking in the night in search of their life-giving food, as they wait for the inherent safety of the sun rise. Deep in the ocean where the sun’s rays are unable to penetrate is a crab or a squid feeling its way along, oblivious to the sun coming up to see the Earth. To them, all the colors that generate from that marvelous time of beginning are somewhere else but not here. Their life doesn’t revolve around the life-giving rays. So it’s not that important to them that those rays weren’t here a few minutes ago. those rays were generated earlier and what is now, wasn’t before. instead they might rely on some thing else from the sun. that incredible warmth that keeps our domain from becoming sub-zero, the heat that comes with the light is oh so important to them as it prevents the waters from freezing and trapping them is a solid block of ice.
And then there’s you. You are the One. You’re the One that can see the Sun rise. If you are awake and look to the East and can see the Horizon at daybreak, you can see the Sun rise. it’s for you to decide. But if you’re enclosed in a structure or not awake or just aren’t looking to the East or it isn’t daybreak. Does the Sun still rise?
So many things that are, also are not. think of a time you see a rose that someone gave you that was growing in a beautiful rose garden not long ago. The rose was beautiful growing in the sunlight. Now, as it’s dying, it brings joy or love or friendship with it as it’s passed from one person to another. Was it the rose that felt the Love or harbored the friendship or joy? Or was that created by you. Was the One that desired also the One that was the reality?
Imagine the incredible feeling at childbirth. The softest of mothers are able to experience sometimes incredible pain. The hardest of men are unable to stop from weeping at the instant they see the new life of a child presented to the world for the first time. All the feelings and sights and sounds that are there and everyone’s experience is different. The One that is most important to you at the instant a memory is created is yours. Now try to imagine that you, as you once were, are the child being born. What was the One thing you desired at that moment?
What is reality? There are cars and trucks, school and work, traffic and a hiking trail, a new TV and good meal, a woman and a man. All the pleasures of the material world are reality. All the pains of the material world are also reality. They are real to those that make them real. Think of the One thing you enjoy most. Then, think of why you enjoy it. Is it a feeling of joy, of sharing, of giving, of taking, of fulfillment, of compassion, of love. Did you make the experience real with the love you put into it? Are you the only One that the love made the reality for? And does your reality exist only for you. Others may be similar but only One is yours.
Think of hunger, pain, torment, pestilence and all the hardships that exist for us on this Earth. Think of the hate and disagreement between us and the wars they create. Is all of that our reality or is our reality what creates all of that? So we think and therefore believe and then exist in the realities of our desires.
As you watch the sun setting and the light begin to fade does the red rose turn to grey? or is it still red as it was? it is as you believe it is. As you drift into the realm of dreams does the childbirth that so moves the hearts of mankind cease to exist? Is your One desire that has been with you since that day tear thru the fabric of existence for you to feel as it winds through. It is the One thing that was is and will always be.And as we wait for the new sunrise, the new dawn to arrive, it never will. For as we move along the face of the Earth and the Earth travels through the expanse. And as the earth turns toward the Sun that never rises but remains in place for us to come to it as we ride the iron cored World to reveal its magnificence. And the reality that we knew never was.
The reality that is the One is the only thing that is truly real. The One desire that holds to your thoughts and dreams remains for you. The World and the realities from before will try to keep you from your One but remember the One, your One. Think of your One, dream of your One, remember you One. And get The One. That is the reality you will always know. For all the animals, birds and fish and almost all of the rest of the inhabitants of the Earth, all of the Reality that is, just was. And the Sun will set.
