People generally reach high and are shallow or reach deep and are boring. Is there a way, like this tree, to be both? Can we reach down down down into the earth’s rich soil to receive all the nutrients available to us in all its variety, and at the same time reach high for ecstatic, mystical, and spiritual life?
Is it possible to be deep and happy at the same time? It is rare to see. And it has perplexed me for years.
