The Orgasmic Life of Trees


I was standing on my parent’s balcony this morning, listening to the trees that majestically stand in their building’s courtyard garden. And they whispered to me a secret nobody knows…


The trees live an orgasmic life. Slow, and strong AF.


The wind tickles their leaves and they are in bliss. Their growth and expansion into the soil and out in the air as their trunk thickens feels so strengthening and empowering, it feels like ecstasy.


They are totally at one with the flow of Life, surrendering and taking all necessary actions to keep Life flowing and growing in the most aligned possible way. Nothing is ever wrong, no existential fears come up, it is not part of their encoded incarnated signature. It is not part of their destiny here. They are here to embody what it means to be totally and utterly in flow with Life, in all of its spiralling growth, with the seasons from birth to death to birth to death to birth to death.


The trees don’t think it’s wrong and bad to disrespect them, they know it’s a part of the process. They want humans to go through all the stages of learning in order to realise themselves as expressions of the Oneness. They have surrendered their sense of self for the Joy of All and all the necessary steps towards it. I will write this paragraph again at the end.


We humans are walking, talking, dancing, singing kinds of trees. Our roots grow in our inner soil, which is our guts and our wombs. Our branches and leaves are our expression. And just like trees, we too have the ability to be totally and utterly attuned to the flow of Life.


The wonderful thing is: as humans, we have the opportunity to be it in an even more complex way, because unlike trees we also have the multidimensionality of our emotions, our minds, our talents our creativity, our higher states of consciousness and so many other things!


Trees are magical companions in this endeavour of ours. Being around them allows us to re-attune ourselves to that Flow, because in truth it is the same Flow for all living beings. Isn’t that special? Watching them, being in their field, and listening to their deep messages teaches us that nothing is ever wrong, that all of our expressions, even the distorted ones are meant to be, are part of the process.


Once we forgive ourselves for having distorted minds that do not allow the flow of Life to flow, we get to face the actual distortions and allow ourselves to feel what needs to be felt. That precisely is allowing Life to flow through us. And once we know how to feel our feelings we build an inner confidence, an inner safety, our roots start to spread, our bodies become the soil we had always needed. The very soil and safety we had previously legitimately expected to find in materialistic things, or achievements, or the love of someone, or comforting addictions of any kind finally starts to come from within.


And then…the distortions slowly start to dissolve naturally, without our minds taking control of that process. The intelligence of Life does that for us. We become simply a facilitator, putting in place the healing practices, the safe spaces for expression. Slowly but surely, we become more and more attuned to who we always were and had forgotten we were.


And we realise we never would have been able to embody that confidence and inner safety with that much strength had we not been lost in this distortion, unique to our incarnation, our ancestors, our karmic memories, our upbringing. It was merely a step to our ascension. It was never wrong. We just needed to learn to surrender, and let Life flow with the distortions included.


The trees don’t think it’s wrong and bad to disrespect them, they know it’s a part of the process. They deeply desire humans to go through all the stages of learning in order to realise themselves as expressions of the Oneness. They have surrendered their sense of self for the Joy of All and all the necessary steps towards it.


Just like the trees, just like the birds, one step of evolution between the trees and us, we humans have the power to become a newly evolved, complex, multidimensional version of embodiment of what it means to let Life flow, orgasmically.
