With the tree, we look down from the leaves, to the branches, the trunk and perhaps we see a bit of the root showing above ground;

With our lives, personal, social, global, it is not at all so obvious

But through kindness, respect, appreciation, gratitude

We show we are deserving and people, Nature, give us hints and tools:

Voila! There we are, experiencing finer and finer levels of Life, of senses, of thought,

And Voila! there we are at the source of our thinking, our own simple awareness–the root.
