The sun rises in obedience to a universal law

Somewhere, in a book, I once read “The sun rises in obedience to a universal law”. A sunrise means much more to me. A new day, a new beginning, being thankful that I am there watching it, beauty, change.

There is change from second to second, especially when the sun starts rising. And variety, every day is different, even when it seems to be the same. Just like everything in life.

Celebrate what’s right with the world

‘Enjoy these moments, they will not come again’ my mother used to tell us. Later on in life, I started following her advice without realizing it. I started focusing on everything that felt right, no matter how small, and enjoying it. It is small things, like flowers, birds, fish, seeds, a smile, a good word, that make up our world, life.

Then, about a year ago, a video appeared in front of me, as if on purpose. It was Dewitt Jones’ TEDx presentation called ‘Celebrate what’s right with the world’. Since then celebration has become part of my enjoyment ritual. I try to celebrate everything that is right with my world. It may sound selfish (“my” world) but it is a good place to start.
