We trees are expert meditators, living in the here and now, observing what is without judgment; inhabiting ourselves fully from deepest roots to sunlit crown.

We have an awareness of the breath of the earth, the waves and tides moving in and out, the winds, the seasons, the arc of the sun throughout the day, the brilliance and power of its light, the rising of life giving water through our roots, the magnetic pull of the earth, the many life forms we support and shelter, the moon phases and starlight that bathe us at night; the exquisite nuances of air, vibrating with thunder, soft with breezes, or high winds, roiling clouds thick with moisture.
We feel and know and observe it all.
We are rooted here now in this moment we have no need to question or analyze this fact or second guess or regret anything!
We simply take our place in the web of all that is, weaving a container for all beings on the earth with our branches and roots, crowning our beloved earth with our love.
