With a Tree

Move towards the tree
Look up, about
at its branches
its leaves, its needles

Move one step to the right
Look and feel, return
Move one step to the left
Look and feel, return

Ask to sit with the tree
You'll know a yes

Turn, sit at its base 
lean in, place your hands
on the ground, become
aware of the roots,
listen for the breeze

listen for the whispers
stay awhile, till you know
stand, give thanks
step back, give thanks

Alternatively, from the comfort of a chair, imagine reading this passage as you walk to a tree and say hello. 

well-living world 2718

MovementAs I write, I become one with my practice of wellth movement. A decision to weave well-being and well-living together for the world, with the planet, & from the whole.
MovementMy commitment is to guide you to discover and shape your wellth (wealth) movement in alignment with everyday decisions with simplicity, elegance, and humility
MovementIf you just whistle every now and then, Stephen; skip every thousandth step or so; skim the odd stone across the odd pond; go dancing on the occasional blue moon, if only alone in the dark; dress up sometimes, even with nowhere to go… Mike Dooley (Message from the Universe) ©www.tut.com
WalkingFrom the wanderfull remembrance of Heraclitus that we do step in the same river twice, the same could be said for walking the pathways near you - see you on the path!
WalkingThere is walking and there is leaping. A gradual walk is interrupted occasionally with a leap. The other approach gets you wet.
WellthOf what is presenting - often, it's something you have to deal with from the past. Why do another round? Face it. Walk through It. And, benefit from IT.
WellthOf what I create and share - sometimes the word "convenience" is a big green bow that wraps the present. And that is okay!
WellthThe guide rails of my wellth movement involve ethical values, ecological literacy, and environmental principles. Weaving them together bracket my yes and no
WellthMaking sense is an approach that requires grace, deliberations, and humility --- ah, inviting multisensory insights.
