what is it about trees that can be so enlightening?
i have been told that enlightenment is only for Buddhists.
recently, i attended at conference on all the World Religions.
what is it about Buddhism that is so attractive?
perhaps it's the sheer beauty of their meditative practices that gets me. moments spent in complete quietness, examining the mental energy in their minds.
sounds like it's apart from God.
but perhaps it doesn't have to be.
interesting that while Siddhartha was sitting under a tree, he first found enlightenment.
i think they will always be intriguing.
trees that is.
