If feeling a bit battered or hostile, we could liken our state of mind to a lump of coal; and liken clear awareness to a diamond.
And this is much much better than it sounds.
For despite the appearance of great contrast, there is really no difference: coal and diamond are merely different arrangements of the identical molecules in carbon.
A diamond is coal transformed; so nothing is set in stone.
Certainly not you, and certainly not today.
