Reconciliation, Preslava PetrovaReconciliation, Daniela Stoyanova


     Nature is smiling while sun is shining,
     Heavens are blue,
     Wakening earth to life anew,
     Wakening earth to life anew.
     Flowers, trees and birds, and bees
     Are welcoming springtime with music gay (glad).
     Nature rejoices on this day.
     Nature rejoices on this day.
IDEAReconciliation, Plamena Sereva

Reconciliation is a process of coping with contradictions and finding peace. Examples of processes and states in nature, in the person (thoughts, feelings, deeds) and relations:

  • a tree bends under the wind (but remains in its place);
  • I want to play/rest but I have to study/work (so they follow one another);
  • we overcome obstacles on the way to our purpose;
  • we have contrary viewpoints but look for compromise (and we reach it);
  • we have quarrelled but we need to reconcile (and I apologize);
  • two countries at war reconcile (and sign peace treaty).

“The fluid soft lines which the hands make in front, to the sides and back again are magnetic. These are lines of softness and reconciliation. They are helping us to resolve all the contradictions of life through gentleness and reconciliation.” [Beinsa Douno, Paneurhythmy, p.44]
