The Quotes Challenge Day Two

Aayusi has kindly nominated me for the Quotes Challenge, and in typical Lucid G style I’m late, but I am here!The idea is to post a favourite quote for three days and nominate three people to join in, so, day two.

Sometimes I come across a tree which seems like Buddha or Jesus: loving, compassionate, still, unambitious, enlightened, in eternal meditation, giving pleasure to a pilgrim, shade to a cow, berries to a bird, beauty to its surroundings, health to its neighbors, branches for the fire, leaves for the soil, asking nothing in return, in total harmony with the wind and the rain. How much can I learn from a tree? The tree is my church, the tree is my temple, the tree is my mantra, the tree is my poem and my prayer.

Satish Kumar

and the area where this wise and wonderful man lives.

I’m not nominating, so if you’ve been wanting to join in, go for it!

  1. Love this quote, the last sentence says much about the majesty of trees. Thank you for sharing, Gilly! A beautiful photo of the place he lived.

I would love to hear from you . . .
