The Tree Analogy

A gentleman on LinkedIn put up a nice analogy of a tree, comparing its different parts—leaves, branches, trunk and rootsto the people we meet at different times in our lives and our association with those people. It could last a very short time or it could last till death do us part.

The person invited readers to share their own analogy of the tree. Here is mine.

Roots: My inner spirit
eternal and deathless

Trunk: My physical being
transient, here today and gone tomorrow

Branches: My thoughts — growing in all directions, and yet going nowhere

Leaves: My Speech
scattered and blowing in the wind

In essence, Roots is all that matters. Everything else is transitory.


This was fun.
