"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.”
— Ram Dass

This quote is dead on in it's meaning... People are too judgmental about themselves and others.. Oh to be more like a tree.. and just live to live....

Absolutely!@manorvillemike

You may also enjoy this I found about trees:

🌳"Being like a tree means being like the roots: creating a deeper connection with Mother Earth, being present in the now, and always growing beneath the surface, resilient and strong enough to lift up the concrete sidewalks of the city.
Being like a tree means being like the branches: extending ourselves outward as far as we can reach.
Being like a tree means being like the leaves: opening ourselves to change, learning to let go, and allowing ourselves to renew."
🌲🍂🌳
