Be a Tree

I know the title of this blog may sound a little funny, but hang in there, it will make sense soon. How’s your imagination? I hope you have a good one, because this is how you’ll understand this better. So here we go.

Have you ever really looked at a tree? Do you see how it never leaves its post? The tree is always living in the same spot, day after day, year after year. Do you agree with this? I hope so, because it’s very important to this message. Now I want you to imagine that you are a tree. You can be any kind of tree you choose. I chose to be a cherry blossom tree. I’ve always loved seeing the pink blossoms grow into full blum, and then later they fall to the ground and it looks so pretty all around the bottom of the tree. And year after year it repeats the process. It never seems to worry or fret that this will be the last time that the pink flowers will return. It just trusts that everything is in divine order. Everything the tree needs just comes to it. It never has to forge for food or look for water, or find the sun, which is a way to get vitamin D, which keeps everything and everyone healthy and strong. Everything a tree needs just comes to it.

Now, do you have the kind of tree you want to be in your mind? Good. Now imagine that as a tree you can think about what you want, like water and nutrients from the ground, but you just stand there basking in the sun, watching people go by and feeling totally satisfied, not worried about how you’ll survive or how long you’ll live. You just live and enjoy every minute of your long life.

And trees are not prejudiced or hateful toward other types of trees. They just stand amongst all the other trees of different kinds and enjoy themselves, not worried about what they are doing or how they look, they just live and let live. Are you getting the picture yet?

Okay, now I want to show you how by being a tree you can get anything you desire in life. You see, when you stand still and focus only on what you want, the Universe will go out of its way to orchestrate everything your heart desires, and whatsmore deserve. And when you stop worrying about what everyone else is doing, and only focus on your own desires and happiness, your life will change in miraculous ways. And that’s the truth. Everything you want is already yours. You just need to accept it and expect it, and let it come to you.

You see, when you are joyful you are actually loving yourself. And self-love is so important if you want to live happily ever after. And that is not a fairy tale. Life is magical when you live from the inside out, which is also another way of showing self-love.

Now, if you are understanding what I’m saying here you should be feeling pretty happy. And that’s a good thing. But unless you practice standing still and letting what you want come, you are working too hard. When you let the Universe collect all the components and guide you with hunches, nudges and ideas that feel really great, you will be shown what you want way down deep. The happier you are and the more you feel good, you will find ease and flow to be the norm in your life. Your life is all that matters when it comes to happiness. You need to care about how you feel at all times. When you are not as joyful as you want to be on occasion, just let whatever it is flow through you and start again tomorrow to find your joy.

So, like the title says, “Be a Tree”, and let all good stuff come to you. Let it be easy, and practice, practice, practice. That’s how you get good at everything. Take care of how you feel and everything and everyone around you will change for the better. And remember there is always great love for you here.
