Leaves – Jina Wallwork
This mighty oak. I have viewed this tree as a constant, but it is an illusion as it is forever changing. It’s constantly shedding its leaves. Every year it changes and refreshes itself. The tree lets go every time the leaves fall. The re-creation is both different and the same. It reminds me that some aspects of self will always remain true to the original. Sometimes we let go of ourselves so we can experience the joy of rediscovery.
When we are asked to change it is important to remember how difficult this is. Everyone can play a role, but they cannot choose to enjoy it. You may find yourself discarding your leaves and slowly becoming the same tree. Sometimes this is necessary to appreciate our true nature. Leaves must fall.
