Advice From A Tree

Dear Friend,

Stand tall and proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of your own true nature
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 like 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!
