Guidance for Palm Trees
Interconnectedness is the awareness that we are all connected and that our actions can impact the world and those around us. You are becoming aware of this and are choosing to make responsible decisions for the joy of all. To strengthen your sense of interconnectedness even more, practice gratitude before each meal. This can look like thanking the sun, soil, water, and beings for their part in supporting your growth.
Keep expanding like the branches of a tree seeking the sunlight.
