The cost of our loss of simplicity won't be realised until we stand in the ashes of our own lives. We have built a bonfire of greed and selfishness that overrides humanity but don't realise we are burning in it. We cry and complain about the heat without any acknowledgement of the fact that we built the fire.
The fire cannot be extinguished. It must burn itself out and there is no other path it can take. Our only protection is the "asbestos" of stillness.
Let the cooling flame of transformation rebirth humanity within me. Born anew. Begin again.
