I am a sucker for sunsets. Last night, I was cooking dinner and looked out my kitchen window to see this:
When I was younger, orange skies spooked me. They looked like fire. Doom. They looked wrong.
I remember one evening vividly. I was driving back from afternoon Chinese school with my best friend (who was Chinese). We were crossing an over pass and I looked out the window to see orange clouds and a dark orange, enormous moon. I thought the world was ending, and I was scared I wouldn’t make it back home to see my family.
When I saw last night’s fire-orange sunset, I thought of my childhood fears and wondered why I went from being terrified of the colorful skies to loving them so much.
Now, when I look at a beautiful sunset, I feel wonder, amazement, gratitude. Not fear.
Could my perspective have changed because of wisdom and experience? How many of our fears are caused by ignorance? I would guess that many of them are.
