Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don't see what goes on underground - as they grow roots.

In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.
If you truly get in touch with a piece of carrot, you get in touch with the soil, the rain, the sunshine.

Thich Nhat Hanh
