For many years a tree might wage a slow and silent warfare against an encumbering wall, without making any visible progress. One day the wall would topple–not because the tree had suddenly laid hold upon some supernormal energy, but because its patient work of self-defense and self release had reached fulfillment. The long-imprisoned tree had freed itself. Nature had had her way.
Lloyd Douglas, The Robe

      I think so. Nature has a way of surviving and adapting. Isn’t it also true that we humans are part of nature? We should revisit the way we view ourselves and the alliances we make. Thanks for reading and sharing your musings!!
