Today is the Jewish New Year for trees. Happy birthday Trees??
Known as Tu Bishvat the holiday is celebrated by eating special fruits. Humans are compared to trees for as much as we need to be grounded below with strong roots, we need to stretch skyward and remember our high soul connection. Our mission is not to escape the material, earthly realm, but to transform it into a dwelling place for the Divine. We do this by using the physical for good. Money is used for health and to give charity, food is used to nurture and live, computers are used to help others with information and send words of kindness, etc. I love how the world has changed, random acts of kindness are increasing and the wonders of the spiritual realms are being revealed more and more.
