Healthy Roots

Thank you Tamara Levitt  for your mindfulness teaching during a recent Daily Calm. It centered on the importance of healthy roots. A tree can be as much as 50% root; her point was your branches and leaves aren’t happy if your roots aren’t happy.

This resonated with me because I had a case of emotional root rot for a half century, cured with the help of another person. As a result, my own already healthy visible emotional leaves and branches have blossomed like never before.

As I write this, I realize it sounds a bit Freudian. He was right when he said that the past (in particular, the way we think of and deal with our past) is the foundation on which we build our future.

I am feeling pretty good about my past and my present, and for that I am literally and verbally grateful every day. Healthy roots.
