Becoming a Tree

Lately I've been thinking a lot about what I'd like to become. If given the freedom to be any living thing on this earth, what would I choose to be? 

A friend of mine in Japan wanted to become a stone. At times she would just sit perfectly still, just being. I suppose that was her way of connecting with the Universe. 

Then it dawned on me. If there was one thing I could become while living on planet Earth it would certainly and undoubtedly be -- a tree. 


There is something completely and utterly majestic about a tree. The way it stays grounded in the earth. Deeply rooted to the firmament. The way it worships the sun. Branches outstretched in praise. The fruits and flowers it bears. A true testament to the beauty and abundant greatness of the Almighty Creator. 

What better way could I choose to show the Universe gratitude for continuing to manifest through me, than to become something as perfect as a tree? 

Alas 

Whilst I may never become a tree, I vow to spend the rest of my life helping every tree to be.
