Inspirational Power Quote

 

When We're Green We're Growing 

 

"Life is growth.

If we stop growing,

technically and spiritually

we are as good as dead."

 Monihei Ueshiba

  

As I see it. . . . . . . .

When we are green we are growing.

Like the mighty oak tree that starts's its life cycle as a small acorn. The tree takes root and though out its life continues grows.  

A mature oak tree can grow to reach 100 feet or more in height.   

Our live in many respects is like an oak tree.   

Once we take root there is a need to continue to grow and mature though out our life. Our growth involves our personally, our profession and our spiritually growth.   

As we grow we become a stronger person and we put down very strong roots, the strength of our roots supports our tree and provides the fuel for our success journey.    

The person that elects not to grow has make a choice; and much like an oak tree with no roots, they will wittier and die.  

Our choice should be to be green and continue to grow.

This quote reminds me of the Morgan Freeman line, "get busy living, or get busy dying", as for me I hope I can continue on the path of the first part of that statement.

I think growth is a black and white issue.  Either you are moving forward or backward, but everything is in motion.

It is good advice. I have been in places in my life where the phrase "pain is the touchstone of growth" was often said. At that point I often wished for a bit of hibernation and rest.  :)
