Today I have been considering and exploring how I view the self .
I have been entertaining the idea/ metaphor/ symbolism of the tree as the self-
The world tree- as within , so without. Microcosm /macrocosm
The roots - the stability , the foundation . Balance
The trunk , where creative energies and chi force travel to and from.
The core - solar plexus , center of the self , Core of the self. home of the sun
The branches - The throat - the expression and outward manifestation of creative energy .
