the gift of trees for life, for practice…

i love trees and this tree in particular, just a bit down the road from my home. when i walk by it, i often greet it with gratitude for being here. the tree is a gift.
trees bring oxygen, shade, shelter, and beauty to our lives. they are also a wonderful example of how we can approach our meditation practice. trees sit between heaven and earth, rooted in the earth yet stretching out and up to the heavens. 
we can approach our sitting in the same way. we can sit rooted and held, with a sense of groundedness, of stability and solidity. we can also sit upright, tall and dignified, stretched up into the heavens, our heart and awareness open, our mind focused and steady.
we can practice being rooted, yet flexible as the winds of life blow through, just like the tree.
