Thoughts of the Morning- March 15th, 2022 | when does night become morning?

It’s 4:11 am (eastern time), so it’s definitely morning, but not night; that’s a thought:

when does night become morning?

I woke around 2:30 am (I had trouble sleeping the past two days), and I still considered it nighttime. As I was listening to my routine motivational YouTube video then singing bowls, it happened to be 3:30 am, and that’s when these Thoughts of the Morning arose. When we wake, it’s subjectively the morning. I know the concrete definition of the morning is:

(Come to think of it, 2:30 am, by definition, the morning).

But subjectivity arises because it’s the moments after waking up. We experience the same range of sensations when we open our eyes after sleeping. Thus, morning and night are social constructs: they help define our society. So waking at 4:00 am isn’t what makes people admirable; it’s how you use those moments when you’re awake.

With love and sincerity,
