Tree Love -30

“Emptiness the starting point – In order to taste my cup of water, you must first empty your cup. My friend drop all your preconceived and fixed ideas and be neutral. 
Do you know why this cup is useful, because it is empty?” Bruce Lee


“Each morning we are born again. 
What we do today is what matters most.” Buddha


I am impressed with this tree, which is a little closer to the centre, last seven years I am riding everyday this route, and today I found this standing out among so many other trees.  I have seen this fully green but never felt the need to stop by and click, with summer setting in- the leaves have dried and fallen; giving it an aesthetic look…. 

I am sure this tree would have seen so many summers as it kept growing and still continues shedding old leaves and giving birth to new ones… something for me to learn in my life.. nothing is fixed and there is no experience which is final, like this tree keeps shedding its old and dry leaves, I too need to keep shedding  my past experiences of hurts, failures, perceptions opening myself to new learning’s and welcoming  newer experiences of learning J

  4. Shed the old, and welcome the new, is what this tree does every year. We have a lot to learn from trees.
