THE TREE OF LIFE
As you stand you take in the scenery around yourself, much of what you can see has consequence.
What is now before your eyes is a tree, not very large as it has shrunk to this pitiful thing, with bare limbs.
The roots that drive down into the earth mother have shrivelled; the light that once came through the thick beautiful branches from heavenward is no more.
As you gaze at this sorry sight, and picture the scene in a different way with branches and leaves of plenty, the roots spreading out and deep into the earth mother feeding, nurturing, giving, this very existence is what should be, pure energy that is taken from heaven and then given back to the earth, through the leaves of plenty and the many limbs, what once was!
So much of humankind is like this tree, only looking at this from a profound way we can see many likenesses to our own existence, we have robbed the earth mother and taken much, without giving back to replenish.
Greed has the upper hand in this trees life, without the knowledge of our universal laws we must lay blame for this tree at our own cost.
Forever taking without giving has made our roots shrivel into nothingness, so the journey goes on.
To help bring peace calm and love back to this tree, to make it grow once more, we must give a big part of ourselves to others, say a kind word and a leaf will grow, say ten kind words and a limb with grow back, do the kindest deed and the roots will feed the earth mother once more.
We can reflect on what once was, then reflection turns to Love and love turns to light and there will be LIFE.
