The Tree of Life – Possibly…. by Tim Walter

I could have put a picture of a tree here, I suppose, that would have been “more on the nose” and what you might have expected!  This shot, taken at last Summer’s “Nidderdale Show,” does something for me, I really like it. I don’t know why, I think maybe it’s that glimpse into another person’s life as they, for a fraction of a second, connect to me with the camera.  The natural light captures their emotion, in this case the farmer’s pride.  It’s a candid shot, it’s not art, it’s just a snapshot, but in it we see as in all photographs a moment of a person’s life caught in time.

Look behind him and you will see a tree standing alone and probably as proud as he is.  That’s what I want to talk about today.  Not that tree in particular, (clearly), but the analogy of a tree as it refers to the path of our lives here on the earthly plane.

A tree is often used in spiritual circles to represent one’s life.  We wander down one branch, but it leads nowhere, it is a dead-end.  So we return to the trunk and start down another branch in the hope that maybe this is the one that will be our destiny or will reveal, this time, the things of certainty that we are searching for in life…

Hmmm… yes, well, maybe… but that’s not the way I see it.

On two very separate occasions when contacting spirit, I have been shown a very clear tree analogy. On both occasions spirit has ‘said’ that my life is the tree that I see.  The tree in my mind’s eye represents my life, they say.

What I gather they mean is that life in all its dimensions for each of us, if we could see it in a dimension that is independent of time and space (i.e. in “no-time” and “no-space”) each life is laid out with all its possibilities in the shape of a tree.  The things that could be done, the events that could happen, in all their scope of all possible possibilities, all of that, all of that potential and possibility forms the shape of a tree.  Our life map in potentiality.

So if we were to do the impossible within the realms of our dimension which would be to live all the possible possibilities of each and every moment of our lives we would eventually cover all of that tree shape.

It’s not science, don’t get me wrong!  This is nothing more than a philosophical fancy.  But the image serves as a symbol for us to consider.  It enables us to say that whatever is happening is absolutely the right thing to be happening because it is imprinted somewhere for it to possibly happen.  Therefore it is right and good:  I may choose to change it, at the very next second, but for now this is where I am.  I can change with a change of heart.  I am not a slave to destiny, there is no destiny that I need to latch onto or chase or feel that I am running out of time to ride. This is my life.  It allows us to understand I have been given this life and I will enjoy it how I wish to enjoy it, in all its possibilities that are presented to me at each moment.

Of course, we can’t see this tree- shape, but The Management and the Angelic Realms, those who have input into our realities can see it as a form in no-space. We are a part of that no-tree in no-space.  We exist as a point of awareness ANYWHERE on that tree at any given moment. We can leap from one branch to another with a ‘mere’ change of heart.  At one point we can be an aspect of the trunk and the next we can be out there, way out there, as a leaf on the edge.

Where, then, is destiny?

Wherever you want it to be.

What, then, is the point of life?

The point is to watch and observe and simply be:  to acknowledge one’s own existence.

We are that tree (that “no-tree”).  Our lives may well be mapped out and shaped as the “no-tree” in “no-space” but we can never know it.  We can never see it.

We are a part of it.  We are simply a moment of awareness feeding back its existence to the forest… a snapshot in time.

Reclaiming the Ancient Tradition of Tree Wrapping by Jan Johnsen

Our modern insulated lifestyle with its technological advances has diminished our contact with the earth and we are now virtually cast adrift, isolated from the strength and resilience that trees can offer us. We spend such little time amongst these grand woody beings that we have lost – unknowingly – an important stabilizing and grounding anchor for our psyche. This changes once we remember to honor the energy that trees emanate. The Zen master, T. D. Suzuki, wrote in his book, Zen and Japanese Culture “Every old tree of any sort inspires a beholder with a mystic feeling which leads him to a faraway world of timeless eternity.”

The Fear of Action by Tim Walter

The fear of action is the sort of fear that paralyses a rabbit in the headlights. That’s an image we are familiar with. There is also the physiological effect of fear in humans that swamps the brain to such an extent that the person simply cannot react in an emergency and we are literally stunned into inaction. People freeze in terror. It’s common for those unfortunates caught in disastrous accidents like stricken ships to simply be unable to move, even when shouted at and slapped to “bring them round.” Lesser fear can paralyze us into inaction in daily life too….

Communing With Nature Spirits by Craig Junjulas

| by Craig Junjulas

Nature spirits are an evolutionary line within the Deva system. They develop in a similar fashion to the human stream, but are much more involved with becoming one with their environment, rather that experiencing an existence within an environment that is perceived as separate from them. Elemental beings and their more evolved nature spirits, such as fairies, inhabit and co-create within the four elements of earth (gnomes), water (undines), air (sylphs) and fire (salamanders). I consider ether to be the fifth element.”

Using Ayahuasca to Help Brazilian Prisoners

In stark contrast to the treatment of prisoners in the United States, therapists working with some prisoners in Brazil have implemented a holistic approach to treating inmates with meditation, yoga and Reiki. Now they have gone a step further in the hopes of initiating changes for the inmates at a deep spiritual level… As reported in The New York Times: Two years ago, the volunteer therapists at Acuda (a pioneering prisoners’ rights group in Porto Velho) had a new idea: Why not give the inmates ayahuasca as well?

Pure-Incense.com- Temple Grade Incense & Oils

Adi-guru Das has been attracted to incense from a very young age and eventually as a monk with the Krishna movement, “I was able to travel in India and seek out better and better incenses. I was later given charge of supplying incense for our London temples and other temples in Europe. What is so special about incense and food that is offered to Krishna is that the commercial element is removed as no-one really wants to offer something to God and cut corners! Therefore you will find that this temple grade incense is of a remarkable quality.”

Cat Tales for Mariette by Michael Brown

| review by Cheryl Shainmark

Cat Tales for Mariette: An Unexpected Friendship on the Camdeboo Plains of South Africa Cat Tales for Mariette: An Unexpected Friendship on the Camdeboo Plains of South Africa is a remarkable story of love and friendship: for people, for pets, for the wild and nature.

He narrates the story of how he is coerced by a well-meaning local to visit one of the town’s residents who is dying of cancer in the local hospital. Michael reluctantly agrees to a one-time visit, which becomes daily.
