„On the level of form, there is birth and death, creation and destruction, growth and dissolution, of seemingly separate forms.
This is reflected everywhere; in the life cycle of a star or a planet, a physical body, a tree, a flower; in the rise and fall of nations, political systems, civilisations; and in the inevitable cycles of gain and loss in the life of an individual.
There are cycles of success, when things come to you and you thrive, and cycles of failure, when they wither or disintegrate and you have to let them go in order to make room for new things to arise or for transformation to happen.
If you cling and resist at that point, it means you are refusing to go with the flow of life, and you will suffer.“
Eckhart Tolle: The Power of Now
