The flow of life fits the different events perfectly, like if it is a puzzle of million pieces in question. Thus, events that happen in our lives that at first we dislike and represent major disappointments, after some time, we see that it fits perfectly in our destiny, as if it wasn’t possible to live at that present moment.
In Germany I just found a curious case that has made me meditate about these thoughts I have come to. The Death Strip is the name of a large nature reserve that’s along the now defunct borders between the two Germanys, the East and West, is the example of this. Half a century ago Germany was divided into two and the 1,400-km. border that was build with barbed wire, mines, booby traps and plenty of soldiers that kept people from escaping the eastern to the western side. Well, in this oasis of peace where nobody wanted to step out because of the fear of reprisals, becomes to develop new ways of life and it’s amazing.
This green belt is now home to 600 endangered species becoming one of the most attractive places in Germany if we talk about enjoying nature.
Life always wins lost ground, abandoned illusions or even parts of the human soul that now lay sleeping. War, conflicts, hatred… are sometimes the most unexpected evolution engine, and in some cases, and only in some, are the beginning of a required destination that some times, like in this one amazes everyone.
Maybe one day, instead of speaking of a particular geographical location, we will end up describing the general state of the planet. The question is if we will be in it or not. I bet so, but that alone doesn’t mean much. We have to be part of the change and not the guilty part. Let’s go for it!
