The Tree of Life Symbolism & History

The Tree of Life Symbolism & History

The Tree of Life is a symbol of unity and how we are all interwoven into the fabric of this Universe. The lines of separation that are drawn in our society are imaginary and we can overcome them when we accept each other for everything that we are. To me, it is a symbol of how nature is interconnected. We, as humans are taught that we are not of nature. When in truth, it is what we are made of. We are all one family interconnected and bonded with each other and nature.
