The Secret to Life : Being a Tree

It is human nature to grow; not only physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. What often happens is that specific patterns and memories remain unresolved in our computer-like brains, and this 'stuff' prevents us 'being in the flow'.

Remember how to be a tree. Look at how the tree works in alignment with nature and embodies that universal energy. It sheds what it needs in order to grow. If it didn't shed, it wouldn't grow. It has shed so much and continues to do so - - as it continues to grow. If we were to follow the example of the oak tree, we would all be free. We would not get caught up in the old doubting human mind of  'should and shouldn't' but simply be guided by and reflect the Intelligence of Life itself. If we were all to do that, then life on Earth would change. It would become powerfully simplified.

After all, what do we really need? Of course there are the basic physiological needs such as food and water, shelter and warmth - but what else do we really need? To grow we need to feel secure and safe, and to interact and exchange thoughts and feelings with family and friends. Then we need to feel a sense of fulfilment in our role, our occupation or our daily tasks. I wonder how many feel this?

But beyond all this, as human beings we have a drive, a need to recognise, realise and actualise our real selves. This is not about ego or non-ego. It is beyond both. It is about uncovering and re-connecting with the essential Love we all are. If we do that, we will all become happy, creative, fulfilled and loving beings.

In the next stage in the global evolution of human consciousness, the approaching dimension is the Soul. It is not the ego and neither is it non-ego. Soul is a hybrid of the two which sees and acts from both. It is individual and Universal, so I call it UNIVIDUAL. In this consciousness we learn to use the non-physical senses and expand into other dimensions, feeling, sensing and utilising energy and essential Love. To be able to do this, we need to clear our old habits, patterns and addictions, because these simply become obstructions, creating doubts and confusion.

Re-connecting with the Soul will initially feel like using a new piece of equipment. In truth, we have overlooked our inner being for so long, it has become camouflaged by layers and patterns. When we do re-connect, we start thinking from deep within and not solely in our brains. This means feeling, sensing and acting from the Divine Loving Heart of who we are. This works because it is organically connected to the individual and the whole. Then the unusual becomes the norm and life takes on a whole new meaning.

So if you're ready to grow, then be honest and open with your life, do your inner work - and Be your Soul.

We spend our entire lives (and perhaps many of them) trying to get back home. The bizarre reality is that home is in you now, always and forever. Home is not elsewhere or in another (although it can feel that way at times). The freedom of knowing and being who you really are (in the deepest sense) is the realisation of home.

When you look at nature, you can see that beauty all around AND within you. When you look at people, you can see the beautiful in you is also in everyone. When you have touched this beauty inside long enough to no longer doubt its presence, your mind is no longer driven to rationalise if it exists ---- because it's just there. It just is. You can sense it, feel it, and may become full or fulfilled by the awareness of it.

That home and sense of real connection is what I call the Soul. It is the Universal Individual or UNIVIDUAL which is the next deepening of consciousness for humankind. It is a wonderful adventure and an illogical mystery that everyone may realise.

Only your Soul is Whole. Only your Soul really knows. It doesn't know in the way of the rational mind, but if communication comes from the Soul, then it may be translated via the rational mind to varying degrees. In the consciousness of the Soul (SOULNESS) - all is included and accepted. This is the only way to Freedom. If we accept all our experiences, then, in time, only the Real remains.

The Soul can see your weaknesses and strengths, the Soul can recognise all planes of consciousness, because it connects and senses all the way from the Ego to the Divine. The old way of the mind would seek to identify with one area alone (such as Ego and Ego-less or Duality and Non-Duality) - but the Soul is free to move, free to experience any and all dimensions of human beingness.

If you listen to your Soul everyday, you will recognise its wisdom, and it will come closer and closer to you, until one day you will not be able to find the Soul because it will be known to be YOU.  The idea of self and Self will dissolve and you will be living in harmony with Universal Intelligence. This means you will be acting for the whole. Rather like a tree is being a tree, or a flower is being a flower, --- you will be being YOU.


When you don't know how to resolve a problem in your life, then there is a way, a practice you can use to help. When a problem is new to you (one you have never experienced before) - and you are unable to get clarity, then try the following;
  • Let go of the idea that you control the outcome
  • Surrender to the Intelligent Love of the Universe
  • And remember ... Love resolves any problem 
Universal Intelligence is intelligence beyond (and inclusive of) individuality. Human Intelligence as we know it is only a tiny fraction of Universal Intelligence. So intelligence is only limited by how separate we perceive ourselves to be.
