What is your definition of a perfect day?
A day where everything goes right? A day where you do not get into conflict with yourself or your surroundings?
What happens when we find ourselves in times of trouble is that we try to isolate ourselves from the world and try to find peace again. That peace we felt in our mother’s womb. We need to find clarity and get back to balance.
But to find equilibrium, we need to experience lack of balance.
I have always admired the effect of nature on myself. Whenever I’m on a hiking trip, I feel peace within and without. I can quickly from instability to stability in seconds, and regain composure.
Maybe why taking care of plants is such a delightful activity.
“Life rises out of death, death rises out of life; in being opposite they yearn to each other, they give birth to each other and are forever reborn. And with them, all is reborn, the flower of the apple tree, the light of the stars. In life is death. In death is rebirth. What then is life without death? Life unchanging, everlasting, eternal?-What is it but death-death without rebirth?” ― Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore
