Sunrise and Sunset – The Dawning of Consistency

There is a fascination in me with the dawning and closing of the day – sunrise and sunset. I love the light, I love the ever-changing patterns of clouds – streaming reds and pinks and visual explosions of deep oranges and yellows across the lightening or darkening sky. The blues, from midnight blue to ocean marine blue, all act as a wonderful backdrop for the myriad light shows that we all can choose to witness each and every day.

I love to photograph these in the wonder of how, from one day to the next, the premise is exactly the same; the sun will rise and the sun will set, yet the way it occurs visually each time is very different.

But the fact remains: the rise and set of the sun is consistent each and every day.

It occurred to me that this is an amazing reflection of each and every human life living on planet earth. We can all count on the rising and setting of the sun – this daily occurrence is an absolute truth, for it never stops.

The fact that WE all have the potential to be in harmony, for we are all from the same source, Love, is also an absolute truth for me. Regardless of different forms of thinking, it is never going to change – it is absolutely true.

And no matter how hard we may try to deny or alter this fact, the truth of that connection with our source, with Love, sits glowing within us, like the brightest sun, waiting for the moment of release.

Consider also that each day, dawn and dusk, the visual treat served up by God is another reflection for each and every one of us. We are given the grace and opportunity in the day to pause, reflect and take stock of how we have been expressing. Observing the magnificence of dawn and dusk allows us this space.

For the sun, expressing so brightly, never alters; yet the day’s clouds, winds or rain do change the way the sun is seen.

How very similar is each of our day’s ever-changing living landscape to the weather that blankets our every move. The changing pace of life, the problems that arise, the relationships that flow or not on any given day, the traffic, our food choices etc., can all end up at the end of the day being so heavy, like a dark storm.

Is it possible that we can forget to stop and observe the sunset within ourselves and know the magnificence we are from?

That tomorrow represents another opportunity to shine?

What would it be like if we claimed the consistency of us every single day?

If we started shining into every dark corner of the world, how powerful would that be?

  1. ‘Sunrise and Sunset – The Dawning of Consistency’ beautiful Lee and I could feel how it also reflects that every day is the same day to sparkle and shine, we don’t have any excuse as Serge Benhayon is reflecting consistently to all of humanity.

  2. The sunrise is a beautiful reflection for us to know that we too can rise like the sun and shine our light and warmth in the world.

  3. Gorgeous sharing Lee thank you, the gift of a new day and all that it brings, the clouds may gather and the rain may come, hiding the sun from our view but behind it all the sun is ever shining waiting for the storm to pass to show us its brilliance, just like us as we live each day with its differing situations that arise.

  4. I love reading this. It is such a beautiful reminder that the sunrise and sunset are perfect reflection that there is only one day, that the days of week etc. are but man-made markers, yet every day is different determined by our quality.

  5. There is something very settling and steadying about consistency: reminding us of a settlement that we all hold deep within. Each new day is another opportunity to connect more deeply to that steadiness and stillness, and bring more love, than the day before.

  6. Your description of sunrise and sunset makes me realise that there is nothing to be perfected. But simple allowing and surrendering reveals the incredible beauty and majesty of our potential in a way and manner that is most befitted in each and every moment.

  7. I love the Sunrise as I feel the stillness of the day beginning and it’s such a great reminder that each day is a new beginning, at the end of the day the Sunset is a great reflection of a beautiful day.

  8. I was watching a beautiful sunset with my daughter yesterday and said to her that I would love to live in a house where you could see both sunrise’s and sunset’s really clearly, it is such a magical part of the day that I always enjoy experiencing.

  9. Dawn and dusk have always been my favorite times of day and Lee has really helped me understand why that has been the case. The sunrise seems to be always offering us a fresh, clean palette to ‘paint’ our day on with more loving choices and the sunset giving us a sense of reflection on those choices and the space to wind down and prepare for the next day.

  10. Yes everything in nature is actually showing us consistency from the sunrise to the sunset, to the seasons, to the animals breeding every year at the same time to the flower blossoming and dying. If nature is a reflection of our true inner essence than it means we are absolutely amazing and consistent too, even though we might not live the fact at the moment.

  11. I’m becoming more familiar with this word ‘consistency’, a word that can keep you stuck in a place or a word that can break old habits that no longer serve and bring on changes – but forever evolving.

  12. I just loved reading this blog, I’ve always loved the majesty of the sunrising and the glimpse of the first crack of light shining through the dark sky – God is with us to greet us and then to add to this is the chorus of birds singing – beauty full.

  13. This is beautiful Lee, the shining consistency of humanity. Our light and warmth never leave, if we all lived brining forth this truth and allowing the clouds to part we would all be showered in Glory with our every breath.

  14. Thank you Lee I loved your sharing on the rising and setting of the sun in all its glorious expression. Looking at the sun in all its shining and radiant beauty reflects to us the glory that we hold within and each day offers us the opportunity to shine and sparkle with our own sonship light.

  15. Thank you Lee for a beautiful sharing on the sunrise and sunsets that grace us every single day, I love that nature is constantly offering us reflections and opportunities to shine the truth of who we are everyday.

  16. A beautiful analogy shared here Lee, of how the sun never alters the degree of brightness it shines with, consistently shining in full power with every particle in its body. So too we, the sparks of God, have the same opportunity with every day that dawns, to shine the light of who we are with every particle in our bodies, so that with every breath we magnify and bring the lightness of who we are to this world.

  17. Beautiful to read today as I contemplate walking with the rising sun, thank you Lee for sharing, what a great reflection that the rising and setting of the sun gives to us at the start and end of each day “Is it possible that we can forget to stop and observe the sunset within ourselves and know the magnificence we are from?”

  18. The questions you ask when you write a blog always make me smile Lee. Of late, I have been so caught up in the storm, the clouds the winds, I have almost forgotten the sun is shining, my sun, its never changing in its warmth and brightness, its just what I put in the way of it that makes me feel as if it is gone. I am grateful for the reminder to shine and to me that feels like appreciating who I am and bringing the joy into everyday tasks.

  19. There is something about nature that always brings me back to a steadiness and a knowing. The consistency and simplicity that you describe is very beautiful and when I reflect on it I am brought back to the magic of God and what we are all from and can live.

  20. Whatever we try to do to not feel or see from what source we are coming, the sunrise and sunset will always remind the light that lives within us just as consistent and natural as the sun, the reflection of divine light, bright and shiny always.

  21. Thank you Lee, this is truly beautiful to read, your words touched on a deep truth in me, particularly “For the sun, expressing so brightly, never alters” – who we are never alters even when we choose to believe or live otherwise.

  22. Everyday the sun rises and sets. It lights our days and warms us up in probably the most reliable and consistent cycle known to man. The question I am asking myself is do we live our days and nights without really realising what a blessing this truly is.

  23. Your blog reminded me of how regardless of the truth humanity may argue against it, such as in history when the Earth was considered flat and the centre of the Universe, even though it was not. Many people are now discovering through the work of Serge Benhayon that we are each magnificent and equal Son’s of God, from the One God, the One Source, and with the same equal love and truth – it is in fact a One Unifying Truth. We are not becoming anything but returning to this truth. How many may argue against that? And, in the future when we look back what might history reveal in terms of humanity’s response or reaction to this fact?

  24. A beautiful reflection that in truth nothing can change our deepest inner essence, and how reassuring to know that even in the most difficult times the consistent warmth of the sun can be equally felt within our hearst and bodies.

  25. What a wonderful understanding and awareness to have – that we create our own interference to dull our natural shine and sparkle day and night. I can feel the colours of the sky reflecting to us the qualities of our essence. Do we know which ones we let reflect to All through the day regardless of the conditions around? Or did the external forces have us keep the cover on our loveliness deep with-in and therefor even hidden to ourselves?

  26. Lee, I love reading the wisdom you share in your blog which is a great reminder to us all, that every day we too have the opportunity to rise just like the sun so that we too may bring light to our world.

  27. I also love sunrise and sunsets very much. There is indeed a beauty in it that always seems different because of the things that cover up the sun. But it remains beautiful, no matter what happens. For me it seems this is because the sun is so consistent in its divinity, that makes every sunrise or sunset beautiful.

  28. Very beautiful blog Lee. Consistency could sound boring as we have been use to the stimulation of the peaks and troughs of drama, and yet it is the doorway into a way of being so infinitely magical and full that drama is revealed for the farce that it is!

  29. I get the feeling that there is this blueprint, an order as our foundation that governs the rhythm and the speed in which we are being held – such big love for it to be accepting of the differences within the sameness.

  30. I loved reading this blog it reminded me how the sun never wavers from its natural rhythm, it has a beautiful rhythm and consistency that offers us great inspiration, how brightly would we shine if we were consistent in our own movements from everything the sun reflects back to us.

  31. What a deeply beautiful reflection you offer here Lee, of the opportunity we are offered every day with each rising of the sun, to live in connection to the innate immense brilliance which resides within every single one of us. Our power is lived through this connection, and through the cycle of every day we are supported to deepen our connection to who we truly are, as we return to live the same day again and again.

  32. Serge Benhayon was the first person I ever met that consistently reflected to us what it is to shine our magnificence everyday – this is truly powerful and inspiring to everyone he meets.

  33. It is so glorious to feel the consistency in a sunrise and sunset and that everyone of them will be different in how they look in the sky but the rhythm and routine is still the same. Its a beautiful reflection for us all to note that no matter what we are all interconnected and that is very beauty-full to feel and appreciate.

  34. Beautiful sharing Lee on the powerful reflection the sun daily provides for us, so that we know we too are here to shine and sparkle our light and warmth as we go about our daily life.
