This is one of the most beautiful interpretations of life and its meaning.
Caught this on Netflix, Chef’s Table, and the way Alex Atala said it, its simply beautiful.
“What is the meaning of life?
One night I had a dream
I was walking in the street like a kid who has the hands of the father and mother, someone bigger guiding you
And I was asking this big person, “what is the meaning of life “
He showed me circles , circles of life, and then he showed me a flower.
A plant has a circle. A seed becomes a plant that has a flower, transforms into a fruit. The fruit drops. There’s another seed, it grows again, this is another circle.
I see and understand but Why u show me the flower
The flower is the moment that we live
The most beautiful moment of the circle
The most beautiful moment

Theres a Brazilian chef called Roberta Subrack, She used to say something that i love

it starts on the farm, in nature.
Living in Brazil is my reality, my soul my truth.
