One night I had a dream. I was walking in a street like a kid who have the hands of the father or mother just someone bigger guiding you. And I was asking to this big person “What is the meaning of life?” He showed me circles. Circles of life. And then he showed me a flower.
Why? A plant has a circle. A seed becomes a plant that has a flower that transforms into a fruit. The fruit drops. There’s another seed and the seed grows again. This is the circle.
So then I said “I see I understand…but why did you show me the flower?” And he said “the flower is the moment that we live. The most beautiful moment of the circle. The most beautiful moment. Contemplate this.” - Alex Atala
