Life is Like … an uprooted tree

Uprooted treeD.H.Lawrence described humanity as being like an uprooted tree with its roots in the air.

“We are perishing for lack of fulfillment of our greater needs.

We are cut off from the great sources of our inward nourishment and renewal.

We must plant ourselves again in the universe.”

tree for life

I think many people feel like uprooted trees in today’s world.

When we make the decision to plant ourselves once more we become nourished, rooted and interconnected.

Each of us can do this for ourselves and support others in finding inner nourishment, renewal and connection to our life source and Spirit.

I call it Findng Your Middle Ground.

    • Thank you Michele. When we realize we are in fact uprooted, we can then choose to plant ourselves once more in a different nurturing space. ๐Ÿ’•

  6. I have always loved this quote. When we understand how to re-plant ourselves step by step, after our roots have been turned upside down, we will grow strong and thrive in this broken world! Beautiful reminder Val ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ€โ˜˜๏ธ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒฒ
