An Inspirational Message

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said; “The sun shines and warms and lights us and we have no curiosity to know why this is so; but we ask the reason of all evil, pain, hunger, mosquitoes and silly people.” Have you ever taken the time to wake up early in the morning and go to the best spot where you can watch the sun rise over the horizon? It is truly an amazing moment to experience all by yourself.

When the morning is just about to break, the sky is always very dark. You can look all over the sky and see nothing but moonlight and stars, wondering to yourself, where the sun will actually come up when it rises over the horizon. You might take a guess but, as long as it is still very early in the morning, you will really have no idea of the exact spot. As you sit quietly and wait, you will notice one part of the sky begin to slowly brighten. You won’t be sure if this is the sun or not at first. Then it will become apparent that this is the sun slowly lighting up the horizon at the place where it is eventually going to rise. This is a great discovery in itself but only the beginning of the amazing things you are about to see.

It actually takes quite a long time for the sun to come up over the horizon. From the moment when you first see the sky begin to light up, until the time when you first see the initial rays of the burning sun, can seem like over an hour. Patience, however, is well rewarded and you can even take notice as the time passes that the sky will slowly change colors before your eyes. Sometimes the changes that take place in the morning sky are so slow that you can’t really notice them unless you are watching very carefully. If you had a camera, you could take a snapshot every two or three minutes and you would see the difference registered on the film. The color of the sky is changing at each moment and it is all due to the rolling of the Earth as your early morning spot turns closer toward the sun.

As you are waiting for the sun to appear, you can think about all the people all over the planet. Some of them are still sleeping but others have awoken hours ago in other parts of the world. The sun is already beaming down on them in all its glory and they are hustling and bustling about trying to get their workday completed. For you, it is still just a quiet early morning and there is nothing to see or hear but the birds and the plants waiting for the sun to arise over the horizon. Then the sky becomes even brighter and you will begin to wonder if the big moment is about to approach. You can watch the horizon very closely and it will become more and more obvious where the sun is actually going to appear.

As the final moment of sunrise approaches, it is as though all the scenery around you is awaiting this one glorious event. Everything that is alive on the planet depends upon the warmth of the sun and this giant ball of intense fire is about to make its magnificent presence known. The horizon will bubble with anticipation as the heat of the rays will actually show itself to be approaching and then, suddenly, as if from something unimaginable, the fire of the sun will be seen directly flaming in front of your eyes and piercing the entire morning sky. It is appears like a ferociously alive burst of energy that is above and beyond anything you can truly understand. It appears like the king of the world, lighting the way with a miraculous power that is purposefully alive at every moment yet stands completely outside of time because of its seemingly eternal existence. This same sun has been appearing over the horizon for hundreds of thousands of years and the morning that you watch it seems like a dwarf in comparison to the number of mornings that it must have already made its presence known. The sun seems to stand outside of time itself as if it rules over both time and space and simply cannot be comprehended by our small and seemingly insignificant existence. Earth">All of this, you can see on one morning when you wake up early and watch the sun come up over the horizon. Indeed, hunger, mosquitoes and silly people are a small price to pay for such an amazing opportunity.
