The Acknowledgement

The time of the day that we call morning, when we open our eyes and cherish the moment into which we pour our self and which marks the moment of the transformation of sleep into wakefulness, deserves Acknowledgement from us. Morning is a door that exists for us. And that benevolence should be given consideration.

When I was traveling by bus early in the morning towards my daily destination, again the thought of Acknowledgement came to me. I looked outside. It was unique: the nature, as if peeled off from its previous self and bestowed with a novel life, it exerted its luminous presence through blinding my sight to green but every other colour. Then the vision changed into gold and then into the conglomerate bliss of the flowers: Transformation. I looked around outside the bus, in acknowledgement.

We open our eyes to the morning, and we acknowledge the presence of the door, the moment of transformation. In order to acknowledge the benevolence of nature, too, we open our eyes, look around, show our respect through showing our wonder, thinking and reflecting, and thus transforming our thoughts and ourselves into it; into nature. When sleep caresses our foreheads or hunger in its primitive drive often surprises us, we first think about the job we need to finish, the files to check, the home works to be done, the data to be loaded into the office computer. There is one thing that we always forget: Acknowledgement. Sleep, hunger, or any other emotion deserves to be respected. It is the nature in us; the elements that give us the state of being, that we all cherish, of being human.
