The great culmination is not static or permanent. Indeed, Solstice as a time of culmination is only a barely perceptible point. The sun appears to stand still. Its diurnal motion seems to nearly cease. Yesterday, it was still reaching this point, tomorrow, it will begin a new phase of its cycle . . . . All of life is cycles. All of life is balance." 365 Tao: Daily Meditations (1992), Deng Ming-Dao.
