Tree Fractals VI - the light that shines through

This is the end of my series of Tree Fractals - I hope you enjoyed it

To me, the concept of a tree fractal represents the patterns of the whole mirrored into each part. From a distance, the forest takes on the shape of the tree which is then mirrored in the formation of each branch. As above, so below, the patterns of the whole play out in the parts.

We see a pattern of experience reflected from a global scale down to nations, cities and towns to neighborhoods, families to individual people and even further to systems, organs, cells, and atoms. While the whole is mirrored in the parts, it is the parts, which when put together create the whole.

Ghandi said “You must be the change you want to see in the world.

This not only suggests a way of acting but also speaks to the fundamental way that we think. When we are conflicted we see conflict in the world, when we feel joy and levity we see joy and levity in the world. We are all branches in this forest of tree fractals and can each choose how we shape the whole.
