I loved this 3 min video from GPhase. Previously I had been thinking about change as a metamorphic process, perhaps because I’m well past being a seed. But just like the transformations happening while hidden in a cocoon, look how much germination happens before we see a small green plant shoot above the ground. And then, little by little, everything grows at the same time - roots, stem, leaves- but each at its own rate. Even mature trees have new growth. Parts get broken off or die gradually, yet the tree doesn’t seem to mind. It continues to live and grow and change with the seasons. It takes a rest period each year, turning its energy inward to rejuvenate. This is all perfectly normal. I don’t know why it took me so long to realize this.
