A Tree in the Forest of Life

Hello, I am Mike and see myself as a tree in the forest of this world. I beam and blossom in great company, but may die in the wrong environment.

My aim is to beautify my surroundings with the ambiance of skills, provided you give me the necessary nutrients (encouragement and respect).

I stand lonely on my own like a tree in the desert, together we become a beautiful forest.

We all have the individual aspirations that make us who we really are, but together we have a great society to build.

A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.

I don’t give up easily when I fall I rise up again just like a tree whose stem is cut. Cutting the stem of a tree does not prevent it from growing back so do I come back stronger from setbacks.

My strength is trust. I know nothing about my readers, I know nothing about the people that I get the opportunity to impact and inspire through my life and works. I live out the secret of my seed to the very end, and I care for nothing else. I trust that God is in me. I trust that my labor is holy. Out of this trust, I live.

Together let’s make this world a beautiful forest.
