3 Minute Retreat - Planting Trees
"The one who plants trees knowing that he or she will never sit in their shade, has at least started to understand the meaning of life." -R.T.
The meaning behind this quote has been taken in many ways. It is personal to you. What will you consider when reading it?
To me planting trees is to look at the world outside of yourself.
What do you want to leave behind when you leave this earth?
What will it say about you, that which you are leaving?
I try to live my life in a way that exudes the gratitude I feel for being given the opportunity to breathe the air around me. How are you doing this?
We have but one chance, one life.
Will you take it for granted?
Or will you plant trees in someone else's shade?
You can be the difference in someone's life whom you don't even know. You may never see the rewards from that which you are planting, but knowing you left this earth better than you when you arrived says everything about a person.
