When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You’re too this, or I’m too this.’ That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.
Which way is up
Which way is down
Let me know
Let me go
I’m not gonna drown

I feel very stressed and therefore drained, these past few days. Searching for a roomate has been difficult. I hope everything goes well and we find someone soon. This is the first time I write about this and it feels good. I need to send positive energy out and pray that things go well in this situation.
