Although sometimes I think I am just an individual leaving a tiny mark throughout the broad sweep of history, at the same time I realize that I am a reservoir of the experiences of as many people who have lived and aged throughout the history of mankind.
Engraved inside of me are the traces of my closest ancestors and the history of our species. I find beauty in something without any clear reason and strive to comprehend an unknown universe yet to be expressed.
There some other existence in me. Not just one but many people's lifetimes and many lives yet to be born are residing inside of me. Their lives are manifested through my existence.
According to some scholars, this phenomenon is called 'collective conscious. Within the boundaries of my perception and expression, I am breathing with an indefinable us'.
must be Find beauty in aging These days, am obsessed with the idea of clarifying my vague sensibilities and consciousness hidden inside. As time goes by, nature in withered fields grabs my gaze against my will. This probably has to do with my age.

deepest essence. Such a nature doesn't necessarily mean deterioration, but rather the reservoir in which every wisdom of the past remains intact.
One finds beauty in aging, based on the fact that nature possesses every trace of the universe as well as every moment of my past life. I encounter such nature looking at the lotus leaves that have lost the graceful and brilliant blossoms of summer. I interpret an autumn leaf with its head dropped on the edge of the water, not as deterioration and extinction of energy, but as a symbol of the laws of nature.
