I took this simply because I love to stand under trees. It reminds me how life can have so many different perspectives. Imagine what it would be like to take a picture of this tree from the top. That would certainly create a different image, wouldn’t it?
When I lived in northern California, I lived in a place that had lots of very tall redwood trees, which are just beautiful, by the way. There was a stand of three trees with an opening just large enough for a person to walk inside, so I did. And the most amazing thing happened. There was complete silence once I entered into that space. As I looked up I couldn’t believe the feeling I got. I still remember the feeling of complete peace and serenity. I felt so protected and completely safe. Did that stand of trees create some kind of vortex? Maybe. Maybe it was a sacred space. One designed by mother nature to cradle us for a short time. A respite from the crazy hustle and bustle of everyday life; the perfect place to meditate.
The photo below is one I found that looks very similar to “my” redwood trees. Namaste.
