I often wake before the sun, it’s my time too spend watching the ‘creator’ in action as a new day is formed.
Today as I watch the sky slowly lighten in a circle around my little home I can not help but think about a photo I saw yesterday, imagining the photo in reality in my ever changing ‘theater’ you all call a brain.
A half circle of light slowly appearing on the horizon. Our half of the days light, while the other side of that circle is closing the day for another.
Ripple effect of light moving and leaving the earths bounty like the ripples of water rings when one disturbs the resting pond.
Oh yah, the photo….a picture of a young lady sitting on a dock dropping a fall leaf into a still pond. Each ripple effecting another as the disturbed waters move away from the leaf. But as with the rising and setting sun the ripples get smaller, thinner, more stretched out as they move away from the object that disturbed the stillness.
Some of these ripples running into obstacles on their way out that divert their circular path. While others do not stop rippling until there is no more momentum to move the divided circles edges.
Yet while these ripples move away from the disturbance of stillness others move toward it, gaining closer ground too the object of originality. If the object is a floating object it will rise and fall with the movements of the water until it rests soundly once again on a still surface. Sometimes this object moves away from the original point of disturbance until smoother waters are found and a restful state may once again be achieved.
Now if the disturbing object is a ‘sinker’ the ripples leaving the area will remain above the water surface but the ripples displaced by the object will sink into the ‘hole’ with the originating disturbance which will nestle in the mud awaiting another disturbance to bury it under the dark murky water, yet the followers can regain momentum and return too the top with the ‘currents in motion’ under the water.
The sun rising, the water moving, these things are a lot like our lives although our lives are not as simple, when you really think about the process many many ‘ions’ go through too accomplish this task maybe we are not so complicated either?
I chose my life choices to ‘float’ above the surface, always seeking new paths too smooth the ripples into calmness frequently finding ‘obstacles’ to learn about and new ways too achieve that perfect ring of floating stillness, as I learned that too dive in and try too rest on the bottom is not so easy, the darkness of the depths, and the constant motion of others falling in was not my thing.
Rings, Circles, and life….
You could metaphorically move this theory into religion and politics. As the world became more populated and the obstacles more pronounced, the bottom dwellers wanting too surface and the surface dwellers wanting to not lose their place on the surface, life became complicated. Outer rings became cracked and fractured as they are being pushed away from the ‘point of origin’.
Governments are having too scramble to make us sink or swim not caring who does what just so the balance of man does not get shifted. Religion is grasping for answers too as they too become fractured by pillars and stones in the path of their circle.
Many of us are following those larger rings too the outer most reaches of ‘stretch’ I chose too leave the beaten path take the ‘peaks and troughs’ and work my way back too the middle in hopes of finding the ‘original disturbing factor’ as I do believe then and only then will you find peace if you find the ‘right’ disturbing factor.
