The equator is home to the two largest rainforests in the world, including the Amazon of South America, and the Congo of Central Africa.
In 2.47 acres alone in a Brazilian rain forest, there may contain 750 species of trees, and twice that of insects.
What got me thinking about this subject, was noticing how in the moment, I am enjoying this cold weather, and epic snowfall in California. Meanwhile, 4,282 miles away in Peru, they are getting up to a high of 84˚ on Friday, January 27.
I am no meteorologist, but it's amazing that this invisible line separates the fluctuation between season, on opposite parallels.
It reminds us of this balance between good/evil, that we fight with everyday. There's an imaginary universe between our eyes, that dictates the life we witness in physical form.
The question then becomes, "why do I deject this feeling of uneasiness, if it's only going to eventually saddle me into a way to find ease?"
This emotional barrier denies us from the pleasures of being. When we recognize that the other side is what gets us to our goal, we are able to move into flow, which gets us better results.
Right now, why don't we allow ourselves to accept that everything will all be amazing. This doesn't mean that we stop moving forward, or seize the march of progress that we are making.
It means that we change our perspective. And have gratitude for the state in which we are in, ready to battle the struggles we will overcome.
