Following a busy long day we usually spend it between the paths of

The tranquillity of the early dusk
The tranquillity of the early dusk

life, and after a serious thinking and a lot of guessing… after all of that and that, comes the dusk. Dusk is created when the sun hugs the horizon, and that tight and warm caressing delivers a red twilight to send with it a soothing breeze down through the burning feelings of lovers hearts to cool them down in a pleasant way and to refresh lovers to have the time and the will to renew and strengthen  their romances.   

The red twilight can sometimes be seen as a close friend by some (lovers, dreamers, optimists, etc), but it can be as well perceived as noxious and irritating by others.
Those who see red twilight as a reminder of their died romantic  memories or other wise…. their failing previous romances. Some may see the red dusk twilight as an omen of a great impending disaster or other wise “bad luck” and pessimism. 
In the nature of things, following the dusk comes the dark, and after somnolence comes the deep sleep. When those moments force themselves in front of people’s eyes, every one realizes that “the sun has gone”, and the night has become a reality even among those who are so optimistic. At that moment of time, we can appreciate that the Sun just has decided to disappear taking away with it, its shiny lights and solar proud smiles to leave behind it the colours of darkness, when all other colours just find themselves forced to give up their brightness, beauty, and lure to be absorbed within the matrix of the night deep darkness. That sort of atmosphere could be seen by some as a trigger for sadness, or a vivid sign for the appearance of the unknown behind the hidden. That sort of thinking will only leaves behind it an aura of fear, scare, worries, and anxieties.
There are those who easily see the colours of the dusk as  conveying the promise of a beautiful dream which ultimately sparks or triggers the very beginning of a quiet dreamy sleep which will only deliver a real freshness beyond the dawn. 
Other people might see behind the deep night darkness and fearful quietness an atmosphere…. a medium for devils, ghosts, and horrible creatures to wake up after the midnight and start creeping their way searching for those who were unable to sleep (The insomniacs) because of fear, stress, worry, anxiety…. or pessimistic expectations.
That is life, it is almost always as we see it, we will find it. That is living as we wanted it to be, we just see it that way. If we were very  optimistic in this life, we would only see its beauties, but if we were pessimistic in our lives we would only see the horrors of life and the disasters of living. We would only see illnesses, hardships, and sorrows.   
Therefor, let us make our lives as rich sources for our happiness, our success, and our fulfilment and cheers. Let us see our lives as our joy and our richness. Let us feel happy and gracious thanking our Lord (The Creator) for the surpluses He has given us, and for the health He has provided us, and for the wisdom with which He armoured us for our strength and confidence.

Let us dream that tomorrow will be better than today, and that after tomorrow there will be another day which will for sure follow it. Let us believe inside us that after every hardness comes the happiness, and after every stress comes the relieve. Let us look far away from us deep into that horizon which always sits itself in front of us, in case we may be lucky to

Optimism is your ability to see and appreciate the rainbow in your life
Optimism is your ability to see and appreciate the rainbow in your life

witness a beautiful rainbow rising up in the middle of a beautiful blue sky.

We need to deep look into – but not just at – that wide, deep, and vast horizon to see many other dimensions of life we may miss on our day to day living keeping ourselves busy trying to tie ends together.
We need to thank God for the mind He gave us, and for our abilities to use that mind to build up a better future for us and for those who will come after us. Let us thank The Lord for every extra day we live in healthy and able to look after ourselves. 
Our Lord, please bless us with a better use of our minds, a better spend of our money, and a better organising our businesses and our affairs. 
Our Lord, please give us the patience we need, the calmness we desire, the dignity we deserve, and the honour we love to preserve. 
Our Lord, please give us the means to see around us and to appreciate every good thing you created for us to  live with happiness and to appreciate what we own and what we owe.

    Hi Mohamed,
    Thank you for writing (Why me?), editorial number 8 .
    I really enjoyed reading it. I have never really looked at the world from that perspective before and it has brought up lots of interesting questions in my mind. One of them being ‘what should our response be to suffering?’

    Like you say, life for any one of us is full of struggles battles, difficulties and illnesses. There is not one individual that I know who does not have their own story of pain, struggle, heartache or disappointments.

    If we look back at our own journey we can probably see how such experiences have shaped and moulded our character and changed the direction of our lives, hopefully for the better in the end. That is if we can accept that life is a journey of hills and valleys, and that not one of us is immune to pain and suffering.

    The question for some is ‘where is God in those painful moments?’. In our darkest moments in life we can feel like heaven is silent…. but it is in those moments that God is walking beside us, in the tears, the questions, the frustrations. We can look back on our lives and it can seem like such a mess …..but if we look closely enough we can always find God in the smaller details of the experience.

    It reminds me of a song written by a beautiful singer called Laura story.. Called blessings. She wrote this at a time in her life when her husband had just been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and was searching for the same answer.


    So I have an illness ……. No one has a cure… No one knows why it happens…and I can live my life with fears, worries, if, buts and maybes… But no one knows what my journey is going to be, except God. So I have a choice to make … It can make me a bitter or better person!

    I feel blessed that It hasn’t affected me too badly but the diagnosis has been a journey of significant loss in many ways.
    Would my journey in life have been different if I hadn’t been diagnosed? ‘Yes….but I wouldn’t be where I am today and I would never exchange that.

    I can wrestle with the what if’s and but’s of those losses but I have to ask do I want those experiences to make me bitter or a better person?. We all have regrets in this life but we have to learn to forgive ourselves and move on.

    But how do we help those that can’t see through the despair, can’t see the amazing opportunities and life that they still have before them in those moments of greatest disappointment and sorrow. Even if the time we have left is short and one of pain we still have a choice… We can still,in those moments, be the best person we can be.
