Lucky Truth

Updated on June 20, 2012

The apple never falls far from the tree
But, the apple can develop into a tree - and become an essential part of the universe
A universe of infinite possibilities

Reality becomes real.
The tree fights to live - and endures an education of agony
Soon, this beautiful tree sees the light
Clarity stands out through the details
Finally, the truth is visible
But, so are the many battles ahead

Life proves to be a powerful obstacle
But for this determined tree, nothing is impossible
This tree will not be shaded by another tree anymore
This tree will uproot itself so that it can sprout in virtue

Unsure, the tree takes a leap of faith
Doing that which it knows to be good
Sacrifice becomes strife – and awareness becomes painful
This pain creates an insufferable burning
Consciousness turns the burning into an inferno

Morphing as the fire performs its ballet
Everything melts away
This singular tree leaves a large mark on the earth
The ashes dance gracefully into the world
At last, the tree is finally liberated
Unbound by darkness and false perception
The new life, born of flames spreads into the infinite possibilities
Unknown is the future of this tree’s life force
But unknown is only scary to the bound

Open the mind – and see the light
See the ashes – and be in high spirits
Be free – and trust life
This is me…

      I would like the tree to sprout into a heavenly landscape and discover its inner beauty through the trials and tribulations of virtue and the greed manifested in nature, i.e. the world is full of the righteous cause for life-giving spirit....

      Nice job
