What comes first? The chicken or the egg?
Well, it doesn’t matter, to be honest, as it is only the human mind that has to have an answer to everything.
Life is a continuous cycle and as life is energy and energy never disappears, it means that life and death are the same.
A creation of a new thing and the a repurposing of that energy to a new creation.
A journey is made up of this eternal now moment. It isn’t about a beginning or end.
