Fountain in the forest

A red flower fountained through the thick rainforest, against all odds.
It was as if you could see ashes falling from a candle wick instead of light.
The impossible made possible.
As I watched the flower vanished into the forest again, I wondered about exposure.
The things we are exposed to in life and how they relate to our courage when we explore further and further out into the vast agriculture of humanity and beyond our understandings of the afterlife.
We begin in a tiny egg and tadpole, exposed to the vessel shell of the body. We feel its waters sway, and its life around us competing for space and touch.
And as we walk through life love allows us endless privileges, rewards and attention, while betrayals occur when people begin a new fight for different rewards, specific rewards, such as heartfelt loves and controlled environments.
Limiting group numbers is a lesson in humility as well as leadership style and power. Although we are exposed to humiliation over and over again in life, we learn to be brave and fight our corner, either inwardly or expressed in arguments or in our gifts, our tears or merely as passing thoughts, but especially in our love and friendships.
Finally we are exposed to the light with which our souls come from after we say our goodbyes to our best friends and face our humble end with or without our families.
After or during humanity completing in their lessons our souls face another such transition eventually without being able to relate problems to a living vessel shell family where there may be new paradigms of love and language, certainly with new lessons about the meaning of afterlife, where blame and humility will have to be addressed face on in a more direct and open way. In which case swinging from a singular to group consensus may be quicker and or merged into one universal oneness.
