I have a special place in my heart for trees. Growing up, there were many large oaks in the yard. For many years I’ve doodled trees and have hundreds of drawings of them I’ve shared with no one.
When I search on the internet for “tree protection” there’s all sorts of sites about how to protect trees during construction. Yet trees offer us protection – from too much wind, from too much sunshine, from too much rain, and more.
Like trees solidly in the ground, our inner tree branches protect our hearts from the elements.
Let stray hurtful words bounce back to where they came from. Stay open to expressing the love you wish to sprinkle the World with.
The tree within provides a solid foundation no one can touch or destroy without your permission.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Like a plant emerging from the ground, heart energy defies gravity and drives up, up and ignites others to follow. Day 22 celebrates heart knowing, a knowing that runs deep yet shoots up to the sky.
I see within today’s heart an Olympic torch.
One time about 20 years ago, I saw the Olympic torch being carried through downtown San Jose, Calif., as it was making its way around the world before the Olympic Games later that year. I was surprised by a wave of emotion that came up, happy to witness that moment.
The torch faces challenges to stay lit as it has to be flown part ways, other times, under water.
