Seeing the TREES while Enduring the FOREST…spirit tree collage pic

Oh my goodness! Not again! Really? You find yourself going in circles, fighting for and over the same things. Everyone is talking but no one is truly hearing what is being said. You can’t seem to get ahead without feeling as if you are being knocked 10 steps backwards with each small inch forward. You have a knowing of what you came to this life to do or maybe you don’t but either way you cannot see the light as to how in the world you are going to achieve or discover your purpose from all the trees in your path. AH HA!!

The trees are the answer. The trees that you see as a distraction are significantly meant to instead be your saving grace along the way. You want to cut them down and plow through the trees, destroying the forest along the way when really you should be embracing them, using them for grounding strength and eternal enlightenment while you trudge through the forest that is your life.  IF we could pause for just a moment in the midst of chaos and recognize the trees around us, finding beauty in them regardless of how you feel in the present, then maybe just maybe we could see what the trees are trying to teach us. The bigger picture is the forest. The trees are your lessons. The forest represents your life, destiny and purpose depicted by combinations of densely, overshadowing branches and roots interrupting what you feel should be a smooth walk through the forest. This is what leaves you asking why? The “why” should matter and would explain a lot to you about both the trees and forest, but in the end the “how” is the only thing that will prevent you from tripping on the roots and being slapped around by the branches. The “how” will give you the wisdom to make it in the forest when your strength is gone so to keep pushing on.

What trees are in front of you currently? Will you stop and learn from them or just continue to try chopping them down, brushing them to the side as mere annoyances instead of honoring them as important landmarks and lessons along the journey?
