Well, birds and plants do die from the lack of nutrition, disease or other climate or territorial limitations. The difference is, that until they live, they do not worry, they enjoy their life. They do not make a big deal about death. Of course, they try to find, what they need, but they do not worry or have emotional breakdowns because of that. As a matter of fact, they probably do not think, they are present all the time.
:) warm feelings
Everything in our vortex coming to fruition is a consequence for happiness(letting go, being happy, etc).
I just don't often focus only on what makes me feel good in each day to do this.
