The Tree Story

Remain centered, balanced, and rooted,

just as a tall, strong tree in the forest,

whose top leaves and branches are blown all about by breezes and strong winds.

The tree sways to and fro, to and fro,

but the base and roots remain unmovable.

Rooted in stability, perspective, and calm.

So too, you be like that tree.

Remain rooted in your loveliness and deep wisdom.

Treat the being that lives inside your skin with unmovable kindness, self-honoring, and respect…sweetheart, I love you forever.

Praise & blame, gain & loss, pleasure & sorrow come & go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a great tree in the midst of them all. The Buddha
