How deep are your roots?

I heard one time that trees that have leaves are a mirror image. The roots underground grow and above ground the branches grow in a mirror image. How anyone would know that beats me!
We often use tree symbolism as we talk. The family tree (expanding out from a specific generation) or where are your roots from (my roots came from England, Sweden and Norway), sibings break off onto different branches.

Well Grounded Trees

Today I am going to continue the symbolism on a personal basis. We need to make sure in life that we take the time to set our roots.  Wide with education; as a former student once said, "the day I stop learning, I start dying."  Deep oh so often we do things on the surface; "How are you today?" "Fine." Or forcing smiles when we don't feel like smiling.  We bite our tongues or carefully choose politically correct words.

Trees with Shallow and Deep Roots

If we are so shallow that we are afraid to say what we really believe, when lifes troubles start blowing we are going to be knocked on out tushes. Why? Because we have never really developed our personality and belief system.  Everything and everyone will be able to push us and sway us as they blow off steam. 

Take time for yourself.  Make sure you have time to feed yourself nutrition physically and mentally.  Let it penetrate as deely as possible.
