Advice from a Tree

 

by Ilan Shamir

Dear Friend,

Stand tall and proud.

Sink your roots deeply into the Earth.

Reflect the light of a greater source.

Think long term.

Go out on a limb.

Remember your place among all living beings.

Embrace with joy the changing seasons

for each yields its own abundance.

The energy and birth of Spring.

The growth and contentment of Summer.

The wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall.

The rest and quiet renewal of Winter.

Feel the wind and the sun

and delight in their presence.

Look up at the moon that shines down upon you

and the mystery of the stars at night.

Seek nourishment from the good things in life.

Simple pleasures

Earth, fresh air, light

Be content with your natural beauty.

Drink plenty of water.

Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes.

Be flexible.

Remember your roots.

Enjoy the view!

The Game

Hunger Games, Game of Thrones. Are they literary representations of life? Allegories. Do they go deeper than what we read or experience in the book, film, or show? Do they represent how people have become connected or disconnected from each other? What value is placed on life?

From the very top down, are we all divided? Or are we all one. Where does this sit within you?

Your truth.

You decide.

Just for Now, without asking how, let yourself sink into stillness.

Just for now, lay down the weight you so patiently bear upon your

shoulders. Feel the earth receive you, and the infinite expanse of the sky grow even

wider as your awareness reaches up to meet it. Just for now, allow a wave of breath to

enliven your experience. Breathe out whatever blocks you from the truth. Just for now,

be boundless, free, with awakened energy tingling in your hands and feet. Drink in the

possibility of being who and what you really are – so fully alive that the world looks

different, newly born and vibrant, just for now. ~ Danna Faulds
