The Tree of Life

Life is like a tree, its roots extend far into the ground, those roots bring nourishment upwards into the trunk and branches. Leaves and fruit grow from that nourishment. That fruit has a lifespan…. those leaves have a lifespan. When they get old, and turn colour, they fall to the ground, and add their elements to the soil, which then gets taken in by the tree roots, which brings those elements as nourishment upwards into the trunk and branches. Leaves and fruit grow from that nourishment….. are these new leaves and fruit the same leaves and fruit which last grew there? …….Whatever answer you have to this story, that will be your take on this question of life after death…. or waking up after death……. if we believe that nature is a part of all of Life, then it tells us answers to these questions.

Nature is wonderful, and Deep Nature is even more deeply wonderful.
