I love being in sync with the cyclical rhythms of the universe. That’s what’s so extraordinary about life: it’s a cycle of generation, degeneration, regeneration. “I” am just a collection of particles that is arranged into this pattern, then will decompose, and be available (all of its constituent parts) to nature to reorganize into another pattern. To me, that is so exciting. And it makes me even more grateful to be part of that process.
