As the leaf leaves…

Sharing the poignant yet profound wisdom of these words…

*Autumn Leaf*

I asked the leaf if it was frightened because it was autumn and the other leaves were falling.

The leaf answered, “No. During the whole spring and summer I was completely alive. I worked hard to help nourish the tree, and now much of me is in the tree.

I am not limited by this form. I am also the whole tree, and when I go back to the soil, I will continue to nourish the tree. So I don’t worry at all.

As I leave this branch and float to the ground, I will wave to the tree and tell her, ‘I will see you again very soon’.”

That day a wind came blowing, and a while later, I saw the leaf leave the branch and float down to the soil, dancing joyfully, because as it floated it saw itself already there in the tree.

It was so happy. I bowed my head, knowing that I have a lot to learn from the leaf.

  1. How the leaf is set to function in the life cycle
    Continues to function through the death cycle
    Down through its generational linage.

    There is the challenge of life
    Live a life worth living
    Leave guidance for your
    Children’s children’s children

    Thank you for the share: Savvy Raj Most rewarding…
