A couple of weeks ago, I took a photo of the sun low in the sky filtered through the trees. When I looked at the picture later, I realized there was no way (without knowing the landscape) that anyone could tell whether it was taken at dusk or at dawn.
Spirit reminded me that there is a lesson in that realization. Whether we see these times more as the end of the old world or the dawning of the new speaks to our own feelings and perception in the moment. I personally will always look to the Dawn, for in that direction I find peace and the radiance of the sun rising to lift us to transcendent awakening.
