You, Like An Individual Leaf On A Tree

You, like an individual leaf on a tree

You, like an individual leaf on a tree

You, are like an individual leaf on a tree…

A unique part of the tree, not all of the tree, yet unified as One tree

The whole tree both gives to you and receives from your individuality

You have your own unique view, while always connected with all other leaves as One tree

You are as necessary to the tree as any and all leaves, all parts

You both serve the Whole tree and benefit from it, together with all unique leaves

As connected, what you want for your unique individuality also serves the Whole tree, all leaves.

Your view may be north and another leaf to the south, why would these different views be taken as the leaves being disconnected, or separate?

How could you treat any other leaf as not part of yourself when you are One tree?

How would this mistreatment not be seen as mistreating the Whole tree and you?

…the only way, would be if you took on a perception that you were not part of the Whole tree, not connected to all other leaves.

Leaves on a tree don’t do this, seems only humans have the ability to perceive they are disconnected from all that they are part of.

Your perspective, thought, behavior, and experience all stem from how you perceive your individuality in relation to the Whole that you are part of …connected or separate?

Consider… What happens to a leaf when it is disconnected from the tree?

 

As human, your Foundational Perceptions about Life and Self are not fixed,

…they are part of the your current concept of self, who you are Being Now,

…which you can alter.

 

 

About John Halderman
I've been studying about life, how it works and what we can do with it for over 30 years. This has included many religions, philosophies, spirituality, psychology and sciences along with my own personal discovery and growth. Through all this I have come to feel we are all of one source. We have many varied descriptions of this source and our role within it, with a thread of commonality running through them all connecting our oneness. I feel that our putting more attention to this oneness is what will bring us together as one operating force of love and understanding. It is my purpose to help oneness and unity to become our functional reality. John Halderman
