Its easy to feel content when we are at our high point on our mountain peak. But we truly discover Self when we are at our lowest depths, in the Valley. It is in our darkest hour that our true mentle is shown. Family, friends, priests, doctors each offer their own brand of partial healing, however, totality of wholeness can only be attained when we go deep within, and in the Silence our Soul befriends our true Self, our Spirit, who then in turn connects with the Source, the Unified Field. Then there, deep in the lowest level of our Valley, is found the the life-giving River which flows through it, where nourishment, cleansing and true healing takes place. We then emerge stronger, healthier, more aware and enlightened than before.

I think that I shall never see  
a poem lovely as a tree.  
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest  against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;  
A tree that looks at God all day, and lifts her leafy arms to pray;  
A tree that may in summer wear a nest of robins in her hair;  
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured. And every young farmboy knows that the hardest and noblest wood has the narrowest rings, that high on the mountains and in continuing danger the most indestructible, the strongest, the ideal trees grow.

image

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.

image

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.

When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent. You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home. But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother. Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.

image

A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening. If one listens to them silently for a long time, this longing reveals its kernel, its meaning. It is not so much a matter of escaping from one’s suffering, though it may seem to be so. It is a longing for home, for a memory of the mother, for new metaphors for life. It leads home. Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother.

So the tree rustles in the evening, when we stand uneasy before our own childish thoughts: Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful, just as they have longer lives than ours. They are wiser than we are, as long as we do not listen to them. But when we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy. Whoever has learned how to listen to trees no longer wants to be a tree. He wants to be nothing except what he is. That is home. That is happiness.

“I believe that everything happens for a reason.

People change so that you can learn to let go,

things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right,

you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,

and sometimes good things fall apart so

better things can fall together.”

~ Marilyn Monroe

We are sun and moon, dear friend;

we are sea and land.

It is not our purpose to become each other;

it is to recognize each other,

to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is:

each the other’s opposite and complement.

{Hermann Hesse}

“There is a tide in the affairs of men,

which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune.

Omitted, all the voyage of their life is

bound in shallows and in miseries.

On such a full sea are we now afloat.

And we must take the current when it serves,

or lose our ventures”

{William Shakespeare}

“If the doors of perception were cleansed

every thing would appear to man as it is,

Infinite.

For man has closed himself up,

till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe,

a part limited in time and space.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings

as something separated from the rest,

a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

This delusion is a kind of prison for us,

restricting us to our personal desires and to affection

for a few persons nearest to us.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison

by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all

living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

{Albert Einstein}

Don’t bend;

don’t water it down;

don’t try to make it logical;

don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion.

Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.

We, all who live, have
A life that is lived
And another life that is thought,
And the only life we have
It’s the one that is divided
In right or wrong.

“The people I consider successful are so because of how they handle their responsibilities to other people, how they approach the future, people who have a full sense of the value of their life and what they want to do with it. I call people successful not because they have money or their business is doing well but because, as human beings, they have a fully developed sense of being alive and engaged in a lifetime task of collaboration with other human beings — their mothers and fathers, their family, their friends, their loved ones, the friends who are dying, the friends who are being born. Success.. is all about being able to extend love to people… not in a big, capital letter sense but in the everyday. Little by little, task by task, gesture by gesture, word by word.”
{Ralph Fiennes}
