The Most Beautiful Moment

“During my dark time, I took a very strong acid.

And during this trip, I understood the meaning of life. But of course the trips end, and my knowledge disappeared. And the question ‘What is the meaning of life?’ was annoying me.

One night, I had a dream. I was walking in the street, like a kid holding the hand of a father or mother,, someone bigger who is guiding you. And I was asking to this person, ‘What was 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 fruit. The fruit drops. There’s another seed, and the seed grows again. This is a circle.’

And I said ‘I see I understand, but why did you show me the flower?’

He said ‘The flower is the moment we live in. The most beautiful part of the circle.

The most beautiful moment. Contemplate this.'”
