An old tree came to me last night
I wasn’t asleep yet, but nearly
He asked me to touch him
So I reached out and touched him with my hand
Suddenly I was a child again
And I felt safe with the tree
It felt like he was my parents, my grandparents
And all my ancestors at the same time.
“Do you want to know a secret?”, he asked
So I listened very carefully
“Everybody loves you!”, he said
“Even if they don’t know it themselves”
“They’re just too busy with other things
And so they have forgotten how to look into their hearts
But deep inside, they do love you!”
And instantly I knew the old tree was right.
I wondered how I could have forgotten such a truth
For in that moment I completely knew it was true
Maybe I too had forgotten
How to look into my heart …
I guess that old tree
Was just the Wise inside of me
Helping me to rediscover
How to look into my own heart again.
