The Tree

Once upon a time, there was a large tree in a big forest hundreds of years old. The tree branched up to the heavens. The sky opened up to make room for more growth the skies parted.


Standing at the base, you could look up way up to the stars. Once in the stars the branches grew out. Each branch would reach out for a different star. It would wrap around the star and hold it to bring it to itself. The tree would use these stars for energy. The more branches, the more stars, the more energy.


The tree would keep growing, beyond the stars to an even greater place. The greater place was peace. It was calm and still, but full of life.  At this point, the tree would rest.  It had reached its final point of growth.
