An adventure about a beautiful tree that has nothing to give

When you know, you are mistaken, you do not need to hold onto the past, and so you are free to go.

The energy from a tree, that you see in the far, feels so good that you walk over there hoping that if you hug it will share its mysterious energy with you. Nothing happens though except our arms start to hurt after a while, and so very offended – as you feel the tree has lured you into this position – you say: »Tree, stop holding me. You have entrapped by you. Set me free«

But you are not entrapped by the tree. It has no such powers. It is you who are holding onto it. Due to the thoughts you have projected onto the it, you imagine it has something you need, that is gonna be yours if you hold onto it. So to be free from the tree, all you need is to let go off the idea, that it can fulfill your expectations. And the way to let go of that is to examine, if the it actually gives you what you expect from it.

You may expect, that the tree will give you special love, companionship, recognition or stability. But whatever you expect from it, you will most likely see, that it does not deliver that regardless how much you hold onto it. Realising this, it becomes obvious that the tree, as you perceive it, is an imagination of yours and that nothing comes from a pie in the sky – and so the need to hold onto it is gone.

It is a mistake to think, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

The tree is of course a metaphor for whatever you feel entrapped by in your search for more in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet such a world is an illusion, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, because what is formless is endless and therefore everything.
