“Man is like a tree of the field” — Devarim
Humans are compared to a tree.
In Avos, the guidance for man is to be like a tree with deep roots, so the wind and elements can’t destroy or uproot it.
Lately, my motto to people is this:
“Be who you are — like a deeply rooted tree.”
Just be who you are!
You have the right to take up space in the universe.
You have the right to believe in yourself.
You have the right to make mistakes.
You have the right to forgive yourself.
You have the right to think positive.
You have the right to be confident in yourself.
Nobody has the right to take these rights away from you!
Spread out your arms.
Be like a beautiful majestic tree that presents itself and says, “Here I am!”
Like a healthy living tree; a man’s fruit is his energy, his presence, his life!
When you show up like this, like a proud confident tree, your energy shines through!
