For those awakening divine humans

If a tree falls…

I take walks frequently through the nature preserve behind my apartment complex. Over the last several months I have been walking around a fallen tree, and often wondered why the preserve management hadn’t yet removed it.  It was lying directly across the walking path.. There was enough room to maneuver around it without much trouble.  So, I surmised, they probably are in no hurry to get to the task.  But I noticed something today for the first time.

The leaves were quite green.  If the tree was dead, which I presumed it was, the leaves would have become brown and fallen off by now.

So I followed its trunk to its roots, and noticed that the tree was still very connected to them. It had simply fallen over, from what could have been lightening, or severe winds.

The tree was very much alive.  The roots were supplying the leaves with their much needed nutrients and chlorophyll.

Well, most of you know me by now, and that I can’t resist making an analogy to our ascension process.

Yes, this process often feels like we have fallen down and are dying or in the process of dying.  To our mind we are losing our life force and are physically or emotionally prone.  Down for the count.

And, maybe we look that way to others.  But it’s important to recognize that we are just as vital, just as alive, but we are also going through a transformational process that will knock us off our keester from time to time.

Of  course a more apt analogy would be the caterpillar to butterfly, but work with me on this one.  My point is that it’s important not to make assumptions.  Just because we may be feeling ‘down’ physically or emotionally, it doesn’t mean we are disintegrating.

We still have a strong connection to our source.  We may have experienced some trauma in the ‘fall,’ but it’s negligable in the scheme of things.  Our ‘treeness’ Is still very much intact.

And, using the tree analogy, we are sturdy, and are able to withstand a lot.  Changes in weather and seasons (emotional and physical iterations).  In fact, it adds to our strength.

It could be why many of us have an affinity for trees, and feel revitalized around them.  They also feel and appreciate our presence.  We are not your run of the mill human, and they sense it.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Almost a decade later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. Love this song and your blog as always- we are reading and listening. Know this.

  2. Thank you. Perfect timing. ❤

  3. Ooooooo I LOVE me an analogy with a side of delicious anecdotal! Needed this today– feeling the sideways tree bit for sure. Need to go hug my own special tree that I embrace every day on my walks–i def have the affinity and love for trees that you describe. I’d say I like them better than most people at this point LOL.
    Lots of love to you dear friend 💙

    • Elila….the sideways tree, Indeed. By the way….the time stamp of your comment, from my computer’s time zone was 11:11… about that! Hugs and love to you my friend.💜

      • Ah! I hadn’t noticed that! (I’m in same time zone as you). Perhaps because I was sideways lol. Yesterday kinda sucked, had some things I had to do that I really didn’t want to but couldn’t avoid any longer. It all went basically OK but just generally felt kinda sucky if ya know what I mean, so the 11:11 wink makes me feel a bit better about it all!

        • I relate, Elila…I tend to put things off that I don’t want to deal with, those human, mundane things…they csn create some anxiety and yes, they usually do turn out o.k., but, still….no matter how conscious we become, we still have to deal with a very dense environment, both physically, and as it relates to the consciousness of our fellow humans…

          There’s still that gravity thing, and getting sucked into it is no fun. Hmmm, maybe that’s why it ‘sucked’ for you the other day. Lol.
