Reflections on the Day
In the eve time, I enjoy listening to the night sounds. The last of the bird calls, the moaning of the cow across the lake, and the start of the frog chorus creates the nocturnal music I hear. This is the opus from the one great composer. Mother Earth grounds me as I make ready to retire. Father Sky dims the light so that we may rest easy. Go well into the night. Sleep well, dream deep my Friends. Humble bow, Dayvid.

What I wish is that you find what works for you. It does not have to be what works for others or what you think society expects from you. For some it is a religious path, for some, it could be Buddhism or Taoism, some might choose to be an Atheist. Other Folks might choose activism. It might be environmentalism, social activism, animal rights, or global warming. Still more will fully involve themselves in the arts, music, painting, sculpting, or photography. And others might passionately pursue the sciences.
For me, it doesn’t matter as long as you find what works for you. Most importantly I wish you realize what is right for you is not necessarily right for others. To also understand that you are not required to coerce, nor force your path on me. I will respect the choices you make and will, in all probability, support and agree with most of your concepts. Because we have differences does not make us different. At the very essence of our being is the mystical understanding that nothing matters and everything does. There is no issue that is more important than a compassionate empathy towards our fellow travelers. We cannot be offended; we choose to be offended.
Cast off everything you have been taught. Accept all paths and respect the fact that we are all just trying to figure out this incredible journey. We need each other. When we ask ourselves what is truly important we will discover that we will share our last meal if required, we will shelter all from the storms, we will provide care as needed, and give that shirt if you ask. This is your authentic self simply trying to live your heart song. Sleep well, dream deep my Friends. Humble bow, Dayvid

At the end of a wondrous day of alignment, the night calls my name to follow the starlight. There to revisit the path of the heart and hear new stories from Grand Mother Moon. The sense of gratitude is fulfilling yet humbling in some ways. To understand the vastness of lessons to follow, acknowledging my beginnings on this journey. The joy of knowing the lessons will never end. To experience the elation of being here and now is my wish for you. Sleep well, dream deep my Friends. Humble bow, Dayvid
