The Seed of the Tree of Tomorrow
I was introduced to an interesting site called The Tree of Tomorrow Site. The site has the goal of nurturing ideas and knowledge for ecovillage conscious living. It starts out with some definitions. The seed – remember who you are and where you came from and that a seed is the beginning of life. The roots – learn about all that is around you and in you and go and gather knowledge and wisdom. The trunk – represents elders for strength and wisdom and that we should use this knowledge and wisdom for unity. The branch – to go forth and multiply and teach this knowledge and wisdom to all. The leaves – to live for the seventh generation and leave all that they need to survive. The tree – gives the breath of life and shelter to all living things and that you should take good care of all things around you. On the Tree of Tomorrow Site, you can explore the Community, Natural Living, Ancient Futures, Voices of Wisdom, Society and Culture, and the Learning Center.
