They tower over us yet we do not hear them....Or maybe we do...

A Message from the Trees
By Megan O’Connor
A tree reaches deep into the ground and up again for light, and flowers leaves to clasp the suns rays into itself for nourishment. It is profoundly beautiful unto itself, perfect from its conception, but maybe it has a bigger purpose by giving all of life a message

In all its gentle grace and stillness it communicates notice how peaceful life can be see how the sun nourishes all of us. It stands, swaying in a strong wind, leaves dancing.

Look closely and you will almost see them waving hello. It has witnessed many days gone by.
The tree renews itself with the changing of seasons. Trees  give a gracious home for other living beings and is a kind servant to mother nature, and in return is rewarded with a  long, life.

Yes, there are lessons to be learned from trees. The greatest of all can be seen between the leaves.
If one looks between the leaves, a matrix of infinite unique spaces can be seen, a place to contemplate eternity, a place to feel peace, a place to listen to the wisdom of the tree, a partner and reflection of the great spirit shared by all.  

Our friends speak these wise truths in their being, which could be translated into a metaphor for human life.Live your purpose with grace and stillness of heart. Gathering light from above nourishes your core.
It is wise to sway in a strong wind. Know when to rest, regenerate and begin again fresh in the spring.
The space between things seen is where infinite creativity lives.

The wise ones tell us it is easy to see to eternity when reaching into an endless sky, which sooths the soul; or while reaching into the fertile grounds of life, rejoice in what is really important, a warm sun on your face while being grounded in mother earth.

The next time you drive by a group of trees, slow down.  Watch the wind blowing them, see if you can feel the wind in your hair, and remember, light is your source.

This is the gentle message of the trees.
