I met a beautiful person recently, who got me thinking about sunsets vs sunrises. She said “I am not a morning person, so I prefer the sunset” It got me thinking the importance of sunrises vs sunsets. Its a new day vs the day is finally over. A new path vs an old one. In the Dictionary, it says: sunset a decline or final phase, sunrise, an outset or emergence.
In Yoga, we do sun salutations, our arms up and bow forward, we honor the earth, the heavens, and all of life in between that is nourished by the breath cycle, the mind is said to be calm at that time and they say an extra one to two hours of sleep cannot equal the energy of the sunrise.
Maybe to some, you know which has more meaning to you, but it is definitely something to possibly admire and truly be thankful for.
Carlos Santana once said ” There is never one sunrise or sunset ever the same”
We are alive.
