We must discover it ourselves
After a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.
Make visible ,what,without you might perhaps never have been seen
|How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.|
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the Sunset.

There is an endless net of threads throughout the universe. The horizontal threads are in space. The vertical threads are in time. At every crossing of the threads, there is an individual, and every individual is a crystal bead. And every crystal bead reflects not only the light from every other crystal in the net, but also every other reflection throughout the entire universe.
