Myth of a Tree
Watch for a good few seconds and you will realize that tree is more than an object of serenity. It's a man, a complete and ideal man.
For me tree has been a symbol of genuineness and completeness of a man. I have always tried to look those qualities in human beings.
Look how it is Standing up tall and with roots firmly grounded showing the attachment with the realities and fundamentals and standing up in face of all odds and diversity facing and confronting without running away as there is no place to run from self.
Even when it is standing alone it does not show loneliness as the branches are like extended arms waiting to welcome the world, without any measure of discrimination on any count. This posture is lively and adamant that it offers unlimited friendship to the world for peaceful coexistence.
High flying birds sits and enjoy their nestling on high branches and at the same time the crawling creatures also crawl and climb at top, that shows tree's companionship can elevate those also to the heights who on their own could have never reached there.
Tree's leaves provide shade in the simmering heat like protecting all those who look forward to their friends and guardians and moments of distress.
Flowers are like beautiful thoughts and speech engaging others with pleasantries and good company.
Fruits are those meaningful acts that benefits others and the only benefit that tree derives from its fruits is the satisfaction that people know and remember tree by its fruit. So are our righteous or otherwise acts with which we are known at large.
The nature has so miraculously designed it that it contains all blue-prints of a complete person that gives everything that it has without seeking any reward and taking back as little as possible.
