Advice From A Tree

Copper HarborImage via Wikipedia

When we were in a gift store in Copper Harbor, Michigan called the Laughing Loon, I noticed a poster with advice from a tree. Normally I walk right by this kind of stuff, but it kept my attention, and my thoughts have gone back to it since we have arrived home, and I thought I would share it with you.

Wood Notes: Advice From a Tree

Advice from a Tree
By Ilan Shamir

Dear Friend,

Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter

Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night.
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Simple pleasures
Earth, fresh air, light

Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Be flexible
Remember your roots

Enjoy the view!
