tree teaches us about Honesty for the tree is able to move the
nutrients from the roots to the uppermost branches. The sap moves
through the tree just as we must learn to allow truth to move through
us. For each human there is a tree that is just like you. If you are
acting as though you carry the whole world upon your shoulders, you
will see a tree that is bowed down. Some trees appear to be tall,
straight and handsome, yet that same tree may be rotten on the inside.
Some people are like that. Crooked people will see crooked trees, just
like them. We must strive to be tall, straight and honest and grounded
with a "good root system" and to know that just as each tree is an
individual and a member of a family, so are we.
