A Blue Tree



“If you see a tree as blue, then make it blue” said the artist Paul Gauguin. We must see things with our own eyes, hear things with our own ears. Our journey is a solo flight. Our vision should be our own even if it does not equate to the vision of others. Relying too much on others can be detrimental. Their vision may not always be accurate or may not be accurate for you. Go with what you feel. A ship piloted by too many captains ends up in the mountains. Some may see blue, some may see green, others may see orange. The world is a chameleon, always changing appearances. Lao-Tzu wrote that we should not become too attached to shapes as these shapes are constantly evolving.
