Perhaps you have a tree like this in your town.
In the park in my city there is an old oak tree that grows downward, instead of up to the sun.
Like a grandmother picking up children to place them on her knees, the heavy limbs of that tree's bark is worn smooth by children who climb her day after day year after year.
She whispered softly that she'd grown downward to make it easy for the children.
Every limb is just the right size to sit or lay or put your arms around. She bends gracefully in a way that any child can rest or stretch or hold her in an embrace.
You can stay there unafraid, wrapped peacefully in her arms. And no matter what's troubling you, she will dry your tears.
Full up to overflowing is my admiration for this tree who is so in love she's bending down to kiss the children

Our spiritual perception fills our eyes with beauty of Nature: abundant, flowing, infinite.
Our Love is light in our hearts that fulfills us. The Light spills out to others, who soon become our friends.
This magic is so powerful, it extends beyond our home, our glen or farm. It reaches out across the world as a voice in echo, resounding through the canyons.
With this voice we will mold a world to a design in harmony with Our Mother Earth, Father Sea and Sky.
We will now create buildings that make music with the rush of blood in our bodies and structures that are at peace with our surrounds. Where songs gently blow across the rooftops and echo in perfect proportion through sleeping rooms, coffee shops and brightly decorated storefronts. It will now dance in the colorful dresses worn proudly as our women pass along the streets and in kisses that pass from fathers to their children.
Now we forgive our human selves for the violations of the Earth that have cut so deep and instead focus our higher selves; our mind and heart to create, enhance and use our bright intellect and power of Thought. All is mind, all is our infinite creation, our choice. In our hands is the whole complete power to create a newness - completely at our command.
The Elven, our ancestors, are now with us, within us, whose blood courses through our veins have asked that we find several things and that we talk about them, bring them to the awareness and possibility, making these solutions commonplace, with our words, and ideas.
First, methods to restore purity to our water. Specifically, a substance which when added to water will naturally clear it.
Next, methods to biodegrade plastics and all substances that can be done in our waste "islands." Specifically a substance which when sprayed on plastics will dissolve them
Next, replacing all products that cannot biodegrade in a reasonable period, with those that can. Specifically, lists of all these, architects and engineers who create them, marketing and proposals to get them into use.
Next, buildings which are built of natural substances but moreover that enhance the lives of participants and environment by virtue of their harmonious, mathematically proportioned structure. All such buildings are engineered and powered with natural resources such as wind, water and earth energy and sun energy.
Restoration of existing structures to conform with our new ideals.
All such methods and means exist within arms length. All that is required is reaching for them, examining them, respecting them, focusing on them for periods of time so they will manifest.
We ask that you find these, write about them, speak about them, focus on them with your imagination and feel in your heart how it feels in this moment when this life exists: where billowing winds lifting you now into this world where we act in harmony with Nature, both within and without us.
Listen: hear the sounds of the children playing, see them lifting flowers to their lips and building new worlds in their mind's eye as they place tiny stones in their gardens. Hear women talking in soft voices and see their smiles and hair that crowns their smooth faces. Rejoice in the fullness of the air of pride in your breast as you breathe in the sounds of men planning; men who are wise, men who are building waterways, who are teaching their sons mathematical perfection.
All of this and more as you see it, is yours in this moment, now.
You will make this be and much more, in right mind, just as you envision.
Until we meet again.
