Native American Church of Virginia -- Not everyone can bring down a dead tree safely without preparing carefully and cutting correctly. Life is that way too.
This particular 120' + feet dead pine tree caused fear in the heart and mind of one senior citizen who feared it will fall and destroy her home. So Chris cut it down.
Now, cutting a tree is dangerous work. There is much to consider especially power lines, bouncing off branches and other buildings. But some people, like Chris, have the gift of preparing and sawing the tree to fall exactly where he or she intends it, by judging the fall, balance, leverage, lean, wind and rot.
Some people's lives are filled with rotten trees, taking up space, causing fear, causing doubt, causing sickness. If you know someone who lacks the skills to get rid of the rot in their lives, encourage them to seek professional help.
When we help others cut the bad out of their lives, we help them create new space for something good to grow. With practice and patience, and working together as neighbors caring for neighbors, we can learn to remove all the bad and create space for new possibilities in everyone's life.
