Tree of Life

 

SYMBOLISM -TREE OF LIFE

You are a Child of  Universe, your Art is your legacy,  witnessing your Passage.

Trees have long been a subject of interest and a topic of discussion – and it’s no wonder; they represent life, growth, peace, and nature.

The meaning of Tree of Life as a spiritual symbol is well known and, like the tree itself, many-branched and deeply rooted can be thought of as your Spiritual Tree, telling ancient stories of your shared roots which link you to the past, showing your connected struggles and aspirations; your desires to reach for the Light.

The Tree of Life crosses all cultures because the Ancients could see trees close up all of the time, the symbolism of the sprouting seed, growing into a trunk and branching off, sending out smaller branches and little twigs, to see what they may accomplish.

The Tree became a common symbol, then, of life, ancestry, mythology, lessons of the spirit, history, lineage, and hope for the future. In Metaphysics, we study the messages of the natural world as explanations for the spiritual; science, religion, philosophy, and mythology then merge in our understanding.

In Metaphysics, we study the messages of the natural world as explanations for the spiritual; science, religion, philosophy and mythology then merge in our understanding. All things effect all things and we become more open to the Light of  Understanding – the goal of being unique while a part of the Oneness which we spiritually seek.

Tree of Life carries the meaning that we are related to the Cosmos – to our human family – our animal family – our earth family and our beyond-the-earth family. All of the Cosmos is inter-connected – link us and it is in this sameness that we find compassion and tolerance and it is in our differences that we should find wonder.

Show and employ the Tree of Life as a symbol of all of these metaphysical messages. Show it forth in your work, in your home, on your person, as a sign that you understand that you are a Child of the Universe and have the right to be here and the responsibility to help others be here as we all Journey on into the future.
