In previous two posts we learned what happened to the human tree in the ancient times and how does it look like today.
Now lets see how our tree of life can develop modify itself according to the following metaphor given by my favorite author, Gregoire de Kalbermatten:
roots – deeper spiritual dimensions
trunk – construction
brunches – abilities
leaves – actions
fruits – achievements
If the tree grows tall and strong, it is lord of the landscape and gives shelter to all the creatures of the forest.
So what is the easiest way to become that type of a tree?
My personal answer: get your self-realization and enjoy it!
Self-realization creates, in the words of an ancient poet, the living forest of marching, self-fulfilling trees…
Self-realized people have a transforming, soothing impact on their environment. They are charismatic and spontaneously emit love.
If we look back and see what kind of nature and powers born realized people of the past had, one can get very much inspired!
Such composers as Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach or Handel, or an artist such as Michelangelo or Leonardo da Vinci, or a writer such as Dante, Goethe, Shakespeare or Victor Hugo, were invariably excelling in creativity.
Realized souls create an atmosphere of serenity, manifest healing powers, and now, though the advent of Shri Mataji, can themselves give self-realization to others.
Such souls call for instinctive reverence among animals who can perceive their aura. They can even, at times, influence weather patterns. There were good reasons in the past that true saints were revered.
Now what about the future?
As usual there are many ways and choices.
But it looks like the mankind is slowly turning back to their roots – the true spiritual roots, not the cultural ones! – And it is now the way to becoming a living forest of self-fulfilling trees…
