In light of my recent tough time, which I wrote a bit about in As Much As I Can Summon, I wanted to share something I read that helped me accept the sadness that sometimes rises up.
There is, each time that sadness has passed, some precious reminder that follows that softens the residual ache and propels me on. This was one of those reminders for this time around. I read it at Global Oneness Project. I choose to agree with it and to be the tree that I am!
“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.”
