The sound of the tree
“We never look deeply at the quality of the tree; we never really touch it, we feel its solidity, its rough bark, and we don’t listen to the sound that is part of the tree.
Not the sound of the wind in the leaves, not the morning breeze that makes it sway, but its sound, the sound of the trunk is the silent sound of roots.
You have to be extraordinarily sensitive to hear its sound.
It is not the noise of the world, nor the noise of the chatter of the mind, nor the vulgarity of human quarrels and human wars, but it is the sound as part of the universe ”
Jiddu Krishnamurti Philosopher
