It stands to reason that, being a Druid, I often look to trees as a source of wisdom and knowledge about life, the universe...and everything. Needless to say I was surprised to find this tidbit posted on one of the departmental web pages at my office. And to think, I work at the local power utility company here! Magic will happen whenever and wherever it will.
We ask the leaf, “Are you complete in yourself ?”
The leaf answers, “No, my life is in the branches”
We ask the branch and the branch answers,
“No, my life is in the root”
We ask the root and it answers,
“No, my life is in the trunk and the branches and the leaves.
Keep the branches stripped of leaves and I shall die.”
And like the tree, nothing is completely, and merely, individual.
So, even the tree teaches us about the connected-ness and interdependence we all share in life. It is something we all might do better to keep in mind from day to day.
