We have all heard this phrase before. It appears in Religion, Mythology, Philosophy, Biology and many other ideologies. I general, it speaks to the concept that all life is interconnected as well as a notion of evolution, in every sense, but with an emphasis on physical evolution.
You may, if you take a moment to think deeply about it, have your own personal concept of what the Tree Of Life is. That being said, let’s clear our respective attachments to our personal definition and touch the Absolute Truth through our collective Relative Truth.
The Tree of Life is representative of what choices we make and do NOT make by our individual incarnate vehicles, from the prospective of the energetic.
Analogies. They are here for a reason…so let’s use one. The movie Sliding Doors paints a wonderful example of capturing two simultaneous choices, one path (choice) taken and one path NOT taken. These two paths were shown in a linear fashion time-wise, meaning one after another because that is how we perceive ourselves within this existence, experiencing only one reality. In the movie, we get to experience how the characters lives turned out very differently based upon when the main character catching a train as opposed to not catching that train.
While incarnate, our five senses typically do not let us perceive parallel realities for a reason. It would take away from the opportunities to learn and evolve by being here while nearly deaf, dumb and blind, as it were and having to find our way within the limitation of the five senses in accordance with the choices we DO make.
By having a choice, a parallel reality is formed. In that very now of the moment when a choice is presented to us, which is nearly always, a version of you and everything else that exists in that exact now, explores all possible potential choices and paths. Remember, in the energetic there is no time. The past, present and the future are all happening right now.
Every possible choice leads to another, then another, and another. There are an infinite number of parallel realities that can be created but they only continue to play out in accordance with how much potential evolution is realized by traveling down these “unchosen choices” or paths.
Eventually, some of these parallel realities cease to continue and the energy used to explore these choices are returned to the Soul that is incarnate. That is why, energetically speaking it is best to stick to a decision and let itself unfold before taking another path. Second guessing yourself decreases your energetic potentiality in regards to the choice you did make.
Let’s get back to The Tree. Born from and supported by Mother Earth. It’s very existence perpetuates the cycle of Life by taking in CO2 and releasing life giving O2.
You, and the choices that you DO make are the Tree. The choices you DO NOT make become the branches. Some branches, the ones with more opportunities to learn and evolve from in comparison to other choices not taken, are more robust because that choice is explored more in depth, energetically speaking. Eventually over the course of a lifetime, what you (the Tree) and all your infinite choices NOT taken (the branches) look like is a Tree. The Tree Of Life.
So why do we pick one choice over another? We all know when a choice is given to us, lets say one that requires contemplation especially, our intuition kicks in and guides us as to what the best choice is. As we said earlier, time does not exist in the energetic so all the possible choices one could make play themselves out instantaneously and simultaneously and your Guides “feed” you the best choice to make in the now that will yield the most evolutionary opportunities that coincide with the blueprint you mapped out prior to you incarnating.
We all make the mistake of believing linear time is real because that is how our conscious brain processes physical reality. If we slowed our mind down and widened our perspective enough, we could experience the billions of “nows” that happen with a single second. Nirvana is the fully experienced now. Just think of our movies, filmed at 24 frames per second but when viewed in the theater, the film appears to be uninterrupted and fluid. Conceptually, that is how we perceive our physical reality, fluid and uninterrupted.
If we watched a plane fly overhead and someone shouted “Now!” and we pointed to where in the sky the plane was at that very moment that person shouted, we would be capture where we perceive that plane to be in that specific now. It would be one location, one point. You wouldn’t point to the whole sky. The “nows” happen so quickly that our five physical senses weren’t designed to capture each individual now.
The Tree Of Life is us, from an energetic perspective, both literally and figuratively, of the choices we do and do not make.
And in many ways there is nothing more beautiful.
