Use a Birch Tree as a substitute

“In a true you-and-I relationship, we are present mindfully, nonintrusively, the way we are present with things in nature.
.
We do not tell a birch tree it should be more like an elm.
.
We face it with no agenda, only an appreciation that becomes participation:
.
‘I love looking at this birch’ becomes ‘I am this birch’ and then ‘I and this birch are opening to a mystery that transcends and holds us both. “
.

.
We need only step back when judgment of another surfaces then.
.
Step back and substitute that “Birch Tree” for this person.
.
We face it with no agenda, letting go, coming back to now, letting it (them) exist on their own.
.
.
.
95% of our drama would evaporate.
