In India, the word “Sandhya” -Twilight is synonymn with prayer. If you approach an orthodox Hindu family who is praying , he will say “I am doing my Sandhya”. When the sun rises , there is a great change.The whole passive existence becomes active.Sleep is broken, dreams dissappear. Everyone arises.A resurrection,.An opportunity to rise to new peaks.
And the same change happens when sun sets.Everything quiets,calms. A tranquility, a deep silence, pervades existence. In that moment we reach to depths.
Both moments are beautiful. Either go high or go deep. In both ways you transcend yourself.
