It’s all about balance.
Bushfire – it sweeps through the bush, destroying the underbrush and burning the scrub.
Bushfire cleanses. Life isn’t gone, it’s just been altered. The old cleaned up to make way for the new. The fire has made room for new growth.
The heat from the fire splits open the seed casings allowing the cycle to start over.
The bush did no wrong, it’s not being punished; this is simply nature’s way. It’s about balance. Keeping weeds in check, perhaps. It’s about allowing the forest to regenerate.
