We humans think that life is about struggle, and that struggle is made to challenge us or break us.
Spirit Tree tells us that struggle is the mechanism that Mother Nature uses to strengthen plants, animals, and other beings. As the environment changes, the flora and fauna within the environment must change. Most humans will not change of their own will so change becomes part of the human conditioning. Hence, the struggle.
When we move with the rhythm of the world around us, then we no longer need to struggle. Our challenge is to find the rhythm that suits us.
