THE TREE OF LIFE, A Connection to Everything

17 Jun

The Tree of Life commonly represents the interconnectedness of everything in the universe. It symbolizes togetherness and serves as a reminder that you are never alone or isolated, you are not an island but are deeply connected to all living things and the world around you and dependent on it for your ability to grow and thrive.

Ancestry, Family, and Fertility: The Tree of Life symbol also represents the connection to one’s family and ancestors and showing us the continuity through all generations.

Peace: Trees have always evoked a sense of calm and peace so it is unsurprising that the Tree of Life is also a symbol of peacefulness and relaxation. Trees have a relaxing presence as they stand tall and still while their leaves flutter in the breeze. The Tree of Life serves as a reminder for the unique, calming feeling that one gets from trees.

The Tree of Life symbol represents our personal development, uniqueness and individual beauty. Just as the branches of a tree strengthen and grow upwards to the sky, we too grow stronger, striving for greater knowledge, wisdom and new experiences as we move through life. Over time, they become very unique and beautiful in their eccentricity and idiosyncrasies. They are shaped into fascinating, intriguing individuals who have weathered hardships and broad experiences in life that have made them into who they are.

The symbol was widely recognized and used in many ancient cultures.

No Person is an Island

29 May
In a very real sense, no person is alone, no man is an island. We are not isolated atoms, each jostling and competing against the rest in a Darwinian struggle for survival of the fittest. Instead, each of us is supported and constituted, ultimately, by all, there is in the universe. We are at home in the universe.
In this entangled universe, we cannot do violence to our fellow human beings or our fellow inhabitants of the Earth without doing violence to ourselves. And the most effective way to benefit oneself may be to benefit others.
We are participants in the creation drama that is constantly unfolding. We are constantly co-creating and re-creating ourselves and other organisms in the universe, shaping our common futures, making our dreams come true, and realizing our potentials and our ideals. Mae Wan Ho
