  • I have been searching for this one Tree all my life, it seems. Sometimes it is a Bristle Cone on a wind swept mountain, surrounded by the sky and the Sun. Under my feet are are broken stones, to heavy to carry. The wind is strong but silent. The thing is.. Each time I go there, there is a different flower growing with the tree. It is always in bloom.

    I have been searching for this one Tree all my life and when it comes to me, it is a White Oak. I wonder how it, being so huge as to touch the horizon in every direction, that it possibly finds me moving. When we meet, it shows me it covers everything in harmony.

    I have been searching for this one tree, a Monkey Puzzle, in a Rain forest ever since I was born. I used to see it all the time when I was a boy. I Told my mother about this and she listened, then after quiet thought, she knew of this tree as well. "keep this beautiful story inside you until it is the right time to share it" she said.

    I have been searching through-out the entire world during my leaf falling life, for a single tree that grows because of the Will of its greater force. You see, This Tree is unique in all the world, maybe the universe... It holds every leaf there ever was. One of each and I go to this tree most often, to listen to their wisdom's and to see what they have seen.

    I have been thinking as a Sequoia tree from the lessons I received from my teacher, my parents, family and loved ones. From seed to the height of what I am, I have stayed in this stillness so I might notice the serenity of the waves that surround me, while searching for the light, as well.

    I have been searching endlessly over the vast landscapes for the Boa tree I meditate under.. It's life so dense yet so full of life, that Only songs fall when I thought the leaves would
    so it helps my understandings, that it was looking for me, so I may hear.

    I have been writing a book a day while dreaming that The One Tree I have searched for was somewhere away, but now It has found me and showed me the value of Stay. In our deep root, our outstretched arms, the leaves, comfort and fruits, I have been searching each time my mind went looking and found you instead.
    I went searching all this time and the world came by asking me about what I saw, how I felt and asked me of my truest intent

    I went out into that world asking the mountains, then the sea and the sky about a tree then noticed how it was fed by so many flying souls, who went out searching for a tree

    I went to sleep and found all the trees.... dreaming me.
