ode to tree

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

 

Another wander in la forêt, has once again filled me to the brim with love and gratitude for the trees. The trees that ground our consciousness and continually, peacefully, and patiently hold it down for the entire planet. Thankyou, dear trees, for providing medicine, and shade. Thankyou for your strong presence. Thankyou for letting go always at the right time. Thankyou for feeding and sheltering mosses, lichen, polypores and fungi. Thankyou for your ever-beauty.

 

Just a note to let y’all know that all the pictures on all my blog entries are my own:)

enjoy life today!

Spring calls us to growth! The tree is my perfect inspiration for these times.

 

As the sweet buds start to pop and their leaves begin to unfurl, there is a continual, never stopping impulse of “moving towards”…buds and branches reach for the light, the nourishing energy that creates and sustains the trees’ own life. And the roots keep reaching down to the darker earth, into the soil and retrieve other crucial elements which contibrute to the health and survival of the tree being.

As easy as it may be to move into the pleasure and lifting buoyancy which emanates from the arising of spring and the light in the air, it is just as difficult to move towards the muck and mud and heaviness which may still reside just below the surface of this springs inspiration.

 

But action cures fear! And by moving towards, moving into the places which feel stuck or disfunctional, they are filled with presence and awareness, and naturally, must change.

This work is crucial and allows us to move through older layers and reach the good stuff. The spirit! the play!

May we all feel the interconnection which joins and supports all of us. May we reach for this connection, may we be nourished in this connection. Through our actions toward awareness may we stand firmly in our true place.

 

Be well and Love life!
