The sun is constant; every day the same big fiery ball appears in the sky above us. But the moon is always going through changes. It has its ups and downs; one day it is full, then it wanes, getting smaller and smaller. Yet even after it seems to have completely disappeared, it renews itself, and grows again.

Even as we grow and change, we must retain our consistency.

I find these words a great solace: Even after it seems to have completely disappeared, it renews itself, and grows again.

So even when we human beings seem to "disappear" and be lost for a while, we are renewed, and start a new cycle of life. Reply
