Just Because “I Am” Standing
Does not mean “I AM” Alive
I see this dead “tree”, from my dead office space. Five to six days a week, as I glance over a left shoulder, this is what is individually seen.
For one reason or another it has fallen into disease or the soil in which it is rooted is not sustaining it anymore. It is still standing and may stand for another ninety years or so, for all I know, but it is rotting where it stands.
As it hollows out do to rot, living forms take up residency and now call this tree its home. Hundreds of birds, squirrels and insects live in the hollows of this tree.
Yesterday I stood at my window and prayed to the “LIFE” which once gave this tree fullness and asked if it was at all possible, to grace this tree with new “LIFE”. I know this has never happened before, for no tree this dead has ever been able to re-establish itself in any soil, but I asked anyway, because “I AM” a dying tree just like the one seen above.
As I prayed, stared at the tree I noticed a mass which could not have been a part of the tree. It was between my “I’s and the tree truck itself and when “I” came to focus on it, the object split in two and two birds flew off in opposite directions.
I took a step back, because it freaked me out. I have never seen anything like it before. It was almost like the dead tree gave birth to two separate birds, which flew off in different directions.
I do not know what to make of this sign, but I do know if the “LIFE” of the “TREE” was to abound again, and the “TREE” was to recover and fill in the hollowed spaces, then what would happen to the living bodies which have come to call this dead tree home?
I do not know what <GOD>meant when answering my prayer for “LIFE” or a rebirth, but it has something to do with the “LIVES”, which dwell within the “BODY” of the “TREE”.
The inhabitants of the tree are not from the same life line or source, but none-the-less occupy the same space.
From this same space came two birds, which flew away in two directions.
I do not know if our time is past and the best we could do is to provide a birth of two life lines or if this sign was <GOD’S> way of saying; after the birth of the two life lines, then maybe “I” will give you “LIFE” again.
I could understand and appreciate this stance, as I would not wish to receive “LIFE” at the expense of those “WHO” have come to dwell within.
A Dead Tree
Just Because “I AM” Walking Around Does Not Mean
“I Am” not dead!
Do not let the smile fool you. I am unhappy and wish to “LIVE” and move without support from the “LIVES”, which have come to inhabit my “BODY”.
The goal is not to live after we die, but to see the dead and ask for life, before we fall down.
Do you understand me?
James the Reluctant Messenger
“If , as a body of life, we already perceive ourselves as living, we will never request “To Be” <ALIVE>.
Why would we ever ask for something we already think we own?
It is the illusion of living, which keeps us from new “LIFE”.
Imagine one dead or soon to be dead “TREE” (“LIFE”), separated and segregated seven plus billion times, providing the illusion of seven plus billion trees, with seven plus billion individual perceptions of living and only one branch perceiving dead.
What is a branch to do?
