Gifts from the Trees

How are people like trees?
“A symbiotic relationship exists between trees and humans. Humans breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide, while trees breathe in carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. … The third and most important similarity between humans and trees is that each treelike each human, is unique and beautiful in its own way.”
We have more in common with trees than we probably ever give it a thought about. Nature is the ultimate alliance with human beings, it just a flat-out miracle when you pause, look and listen to what is around you and within you.
Nature and humans are always seeking balance after all turbulence happens for all of us and it can get pretty rough in the sea of life. We need the sun, we need rain, we need air, we need tender loving care to thrive and survive. Trees need the same essentials to thrive, but trees can teach us so much more. Stillness, acceptance, bravery, co-existing, and to stand alone it all its greatness in the most humbling way. But most of all it teaches us that our home is within us and us alone, we are strong, unique, and that self-reliability is what is all about. That everything we need will come to us in its own divine time. We are never alone and if we feel that, we have abandoned ourselves.
“A tree says: My strength is trust. I know nothing about my fathers, I know nothing about the thousand children that every year spring out of me. I live out the secret of my seed to the very end, and I care for nothing else. I trust that God is in me. I trust that my labor is holy. Out of this trust, I live.”
Each day nature whispers to me letting me know that my riches come in the flow of natural life.  Dolby Dharma
Something calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I’ve got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh
I’m looking at myself, reflections of my mind
It’s just the kind of day to leave myself behind
So gently swaying through the fairy-land of love
If you’ll just come with me and see the beauty of____…Moody Blues

I am poetically clear about my beliefs which are subject to change as I change and gain more insight. Simply put; I AM and with that I have FAITH in; Myself.
