The Tree of Life: A Symbol of Universal Truth

The Tree of Life is symbolic of the universal themes of rebirth, immortality, and the union of male and female strength. Found in the ancient cultural traditions around the world, the Tree of Life is an important symbol for all of the major faith traditions today.

The Lifetree Philosophy

The Tree of Life speaks to universal truths, values, and struggles. We use it as a metaphor for the journey of life, the path of our own "Lifetree." Beginning with our family tree for better and for worse, and throughout our lives, each of us takes this journey according to our level of consciousness.

At lower levels of consciousness, negative thoughts and emotions help attract conflict and struggle as well as create a fertile ground for illness to take root. We experience more judgment and separation. With a constricted and self-centered level of thinking, we find ourselves in constant argument over one thing or another, confounded in our own smallness and pettiness.

At higher levels of consciousness, our sense of the world expands exponentially, we are less concerned with self and focused onto others and the world around us. We are healthier and have a better sense of well-being. We become immersed in our work and have much greater levels of energy and inspiration.

Our relationships are harmonious as we connect with others on a deeper level, where the small and mean things of life fall away, and we learn to truly appreciate them. Our entire outlook becomes more inclusive and intuitively focused on the greater good. When we move from the limits of engrained thinking patterns to the transforming levels of higher conscious awareness, forgiveness and inspired action follow. The world around us silently responds with good feeling and actions from others, raising the level of consciousness of all.
