Mandala ~ circle. The symbol of our connection to infinity. I see the sun as my mandala. The endless cycle of its rising and setting is a spectacle that never ceases to amaze me but it also humbles my entire being. I am but a speck. But that won’t stop me from becoming a big entity in my own mind’s eye.

I say glorify yourself by seeing the appeal and goodness that you possess. Intensify your thirst for life by relishing every moment, every emotion. Tilt your head to one side when something seems ugly, maybe a little change of angle will reveal hidden beauty.

When the sun sets, be rejuvenated. Tomorrow is another day. Another chance at infinity not set on stone.

A quick glimpse in the horizon told me that I should never miss out on what is beautiful. Never be scared to see what lies ahead.
