Life is like a cycle of seasons…it goes on the same way. When we wake up each morning, we expect to see the sun in the east and expect to see the moon in its place once the sun sets in the west. While some people somewhere are laughing, there are also some people somewhere that are weeping. While some are winning, still other some are losing. The face of duality is always present.
Kahlil Gibran said this about joy and sorrow: “Some of you say, ‘Joy is greater than sorrow,’ and others say ‘Nay, sorrow is the greater.’ But I say unto you, they are inseparable. Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.”
In times of our happiness, therefore, we should be compassionate towards those that are not as fortunate. Because there will always come a time when we will be at the other side of the table.
Light and love everyone. I hope you enjoy the poem. Live. Laugh. Love. Be happy. Life is too short for anything else.
