Indeed, man is like a tree.
Trees, like nature, are a source of learning. They show us how the man / woman really should be, in his roots, trunk, and branches. From a symbolic point of view, man is identical to a tree. Many times we ignore this similarity and we just live in the roots totally ignoring the upper part of our being.
If you look at a tree, you see it through a filter, concepts, education. You don't see it for what it is.
Take time, stop and try to look at it differently. Maybe he will tell you about yourself and change your view of the world.
Unconsciously, men and women are turning more and more to the symbol of the Tree of Life, in the form of jewelry or other. Why ? Because internally we aspire to a greater life, in harmony with the greater whole.
