Comparison with a tree, from the roots to the fruit

June 30th 2024
The universe is like a tree. In fact, in many religious traditions the Cosmic Tree is a symbol of Creation. Depending on their degree of evolution, human beings dwell in either the roots, the trunk or the branches of this tree.
The roots absorb elements from the earth; its leaves absorb light from the sun, which transforms the raw sap into the vital cell sap; its colourful, fragrant flowers prepare to become fruit, and the fruit not only provides nourishment for animals and people, it also contains the seeds from which other trees will be born. Roots, trunk and branches are all useful and beautiful in their own way, but who would not prefer to live in the branches of a tree, amongst the leaves, flowers and fruit, which are exposed to the light and warmth of the sun?*
