More about the story. Link:
So at the end of all life is death,
But he is again the beginning to new life and the cycle begins again.
Celebrating the circle of the year becomes the people,
this eternal becoming and passing near. We are part of this cycle,
because we are part of nature.
This understanding is for most people in the age
lost to technology.
But it can also be seen
that more and more in search of fulfillment and purpose of life,
turn back on the path that humanity has taken,
and go back to the beginning,
to the roots, to find their own way from there.
A path in harmony with nature
on the side of our cosmic parents Mother Earth
and father sun.
There are many ways
and no one is better or worse.
