Nature flows like water, in the path of least resistance, no power or control needed.
True clarity is a limited product of light, and darkness induces lies and confusion. My eyes can see and process light, while my mind rambles with unlimited imagination. I can see a painting of a beautiful woman, and it's true, but to ask myself who painted it, when, and why, then I start telling myself lies, in darkness.
Past stories explain why my life is how it is now, and even if I don't know the stories or choose to forget them, my life is still the way it is now.
When there's no emotion involved, it's neither easy or hard, it just IS.
