10 Lessons From A Large Tree

It was very windy again today and it took me back to this post of a little over a month ago.  Spring is synonymous with wind here in northern New Mexico.

  1. Work with the forces that seek to move you. Adapt and adjust so that you do not break because you are too rigid.
  2. Be flexible and move in several different directions, back and forth, up and down, whatever it takes.
  3. Be strong at the center, at the core of your being, and then branch out to new heights where the view is quite different.
  4. Be grateful for what you receive that enables growth – nutrients, light, air and water.
  5. Be ready for changing conditions and adjust to the vagaries of weather and the season.
  6. Reach higher and wider in order to grow and evolve into what you are meant to be. Fulfill your potential.
  7. Give according to what you are able to provide whether housing, food, shade, or simple and artful beauty.
  8. We are just one among hundreds of different kinds of beings and there is so much richness in diversity. Appreciate every kind.
  9. Do not be concerned about appearances. Those are merely superficial.
  10. Grow where you are planted and share with all who pass by.
