A tree falls to the ground in the forest and right away as the compassionate species we are we quickly try to find solutions to fix the problem. We want to do something because hey, “It has fallen”.
Tree’s have fallen throughout forests for years before humans had any interjection in the circumstances and simply lied there to become pillar to the incredible life that surrounds it. Some tree’s are simply meant to fall and quickly give rise to the glory of its community.
This is nature doing what it has done for millions of years and our process of intervention hinders what beauty could arise from simply allowing it to be.
In the same sense how important is it that we also allow our fellow humans to fall at times. Some of my greatest strengths were found in situations through my life where I too have fallen. Of course there were always people who worked with me to help me find new life in whatever situation I was in, but also allowed me the opportunity to work through my troubles to find a way back to where I was, or where I should be.
Sometimes we are on a wrong path and we don’t even know it. As we try to stand up once again to be tall amongst the other tree’s in the forest it becomes clear that maybe, just maybe there is another world we should be living in. Maybe one that is not so tall and demanding of the strength of our backs to hold us up. Somewhere in the ferns and moss we learn that living a simple life brings more joy than living a life of pride.
We are not all meant to be tall tree’s but sometimes end up in a situation that to us is just not sustaining.
What ever you call it, the energy of nature, the natural cycles, or like I call it “God” it is something that we have to pay attention to. Our lives are supposed to bring us joy, not always through achievement but through love. I have found my greatest love in simply lying on the forest floor living amongst those who love me. I don’t need intervention and certainly don’t need help. In fact I feel as I am more powerful simply lending life to others and sharing love.
Sometimes when a tree falls we must simply leave it along and feel blessed that a new life will soon rise to the community that surrounds it as it does to the tree. Sometimes we must simply let things be and allow nature to take it’s course.
