The problem is the solution
We know nothing, really. We might know what we want to happen and we might know what we don’t want to happen, but ultimately we cannot control what ensues. We make life plans based on other plans, jobs, relationships, only to have them fall through.. We try to cling, out of worry, fear or disbelief, to anything in the perceived directionlessness, not realising that this newfound freedom is an opportunity in itself just waiting for us to walk around the corner and see it.
In Permaculture we say the problem is the solution.. let this be true at the individual, national and planetary level; the solutions we need are found in very the problems themselves.
