THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle
:: Unconditional Presence: The Oak Tree ::
Imagine a great Oak Tree. It knows where it stands,
and it holds powerfully to its position. But it
doesn’t defend its position — it’s simply *there*.
You can drive a car into the massive trunk of the
Oak Tree, and the car will be smashed while the tree
remains standing. It’s not standing *against* you, and
it doesn’t take your destructive behavior personally.
It just remains rooted… focused… present.
Now imagine that *you* are the Oak Tree… How does it
feel to be so powerfully positioned? Isn’t it nice to
know that no one can uproot you? Would you even bother
to resist? Or would you simply relax and enjoy being
right where you want to be?
Next time you feel “uprooted” by your child’s
behavior, emotions, or any other conditions, remember
the unconditional presence of the Oak Tree. Stand
rooted in the ground of infinite Well-Being.
There is nothing to resist… All is well.
