life at the market

Do you know the shape of the papaya tree? Do you know the appearance of the plant from which the garlic or pepper is born? We go to the supermarket to buy our food, ignoring its real origin. We are alienated from the nature of the products we consume as we are of our own nature, living surrounded by asphalt and bricks.
Our cities are the supermarket shelves where we stay: we are destined to live within forms that do not belong to us. Social forms, emotional, educational and political forms. Beauty and love are above these squared shapes, raising our consciousness and nature, connecting us to ourselves and our true being. I hope someday we will not live packaged and fated to be eaten by the system.
