Tree of Life

When we surrender when we do not fight with life when it calls upon us we are lifted and the strength to do what needs to be done finds us ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Just like a majestic tree standing tall in the midst of rain, wind, sleet or hail. It surrenders to the elements, sways with and leans into the great forces of Nature until the clouds disperse, the sun comes out and it’s purpose becomes apparent once again.  To give shade and a resting place for creatures big and small. To surround us with beauty and life. To give shelter from the storm.

So then should we be there for each other. To give shelter from life’s storms. To share the fruits of Spirit; Humility, Respect, Truth, Compassion, Courage and Generosity. To provide a Sanctuary of Love. To love and be loved.

Spiritual Warrior

To be nobody but yourself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting  ~  E.E. Cummings

We have to embrace our inner Spirit and remain true to ourselves, follow our self-beliefs. For Spirit is our weapon of strength.  Stand firm, stand tall and never give in to Life’s Battle of Conformity.   We must strive for Exceptional Spirit.

A lone warrior albeit standing tall can so easily be lost in the sea of trees,  fading into the shadowy waters, becoming almost invisible in its surrounding sameness.
