The Sacred Tree is both a symbol and a metaphor of our own lives and certainly of our spiritual growth. The Sacred Tree is a central theme in story and poetry right across the world, because of its fruit. It is said that the Tree of Good and Evil, in the Garden of Eden tempted us all to believe in judgement and differences, yet there were other trees. The Sacred Tree undoes the idea of separation and offers us all the fruit of a new way of thinking and a new way of living in the world. It is this ideal that we dedicate this website to supporting.
The publishing industry has changed enormously over the last few years. Now anyone can publish a book and get their important message about love, healing or spiritual attunment it out to the world. Old and ancient books that were once obscure and had to find, can be reprinted by demand, or even processed into an eBook. Now, more than ever, obscure books from independent writers can be tracked down easily. The world is literally your oyster, and the Sacred Tree is filled with magnificent fruit of every flavour, colour and description. Embrace your own creativity and allow the magic to unfold!
THE SACRED CIRCLE
“You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the power of the world always works in circles, and everything tries to be round. In the old days all our power came to us from the sacred hoop of the nation and so long as the hoop was unbroken the people flourished. The flowering tree was the living center of the hoop, and the circle of the four quarters nourished it. The east gave peace and light, the south gave warmth, the west gave rain and the north with its cold and mighty wind gave strength and endurance. This knowledge came to us from the outer world with our religion. Everything the power of the world does is done in a circle. The sky is round and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing and always come back again to where they were.”
