Getting back to the garden - an analogy used in a lot of contexts.
Our gardens, built on memories and seeded with dreams, need tending at times. We know about the weeds we've got to tackle and what kind of plants we'd like to grow. Memories being indelible (and inedible too,), are sometimes perennial and sometimes fade away after a while, each event taking place in a journey we can look back on to see synchronisation at work in all that brought us here. Perspectives change, for us to see things differently to the way we viewed them then -
if the garden is the bigger picture we all have our unique plot in hyperspace.
In our innocence, that is our Not Knowing, we often don't know why we do things, begging questions of choice - are our ups and downs just part of life's wave-form? Different opinions come from varying viewpoints; there are many colours in light, and many facets to enlightenment. Behind everything complicated, there is simplicity. This is hard to grasp in the throes of self-analysis, over-analysis, past-future anxiety, and stress cycles that fragment our concentration. But there's always a bigger picture.
In quantum terms, order is achieved by symmetry – every particle has its equivalent anti-particle. Electrons and positrons are prime examples, but photons (light particles) are something else. When it comes to photons you have shadow photons merging into doorways of multiple dimensions. For the photon, it’s not a straightforward case of being a particle or an anti-particle. There are more options to choose from. A photon born at the heart of the Sun takes a million years to reach the corona, and from there it takes eight minutes to reach Earth. What's the rush? Everything arrives in its own time. The photons we see end their lives in your eyes.
The entire electro-magnetic spectrum comprises things that travel in waves -
we see photons as visible light, but all other waves are comprised of photons. The colour we see is the colour rejected by whatever those photons hit – plants reject green light and absorb the rest of the spectrum, so we see green, the part of the spectrum that bounces off the leaf. Leaves aren't really green, we just see them that way. The photon is a wide-ranging kind of particle, used in the first double-slit experiments to give wave-particle duality insurmountable proof.
Sometimes the growth of one plant affects another adversely in being greedy for light it doesn’t need. We’re allowed to weed gardens, and can treat histories in the same way - carefully. Memories worth having are worth treasuring. Those with difficult emotions attached need keeping at bay, but the root will stay, so the best that can be achieved entangles it with a better perspective. Let other parts of the picture grow over the undesirables. Look at what’s happening now, and you’ll see where it came from, this bigger picture, and be able to tend the aspects that feed growth. Sometimes there'll be smoke, sometimes there are mirrors. Reflective clarity makes for new reality when watered with nature's penchant for best possible outcomes.
