The buds that you see on the twigs contain — within themselves, in miniature — the leaves and flowers of the coming year. (Some trees have buds that carry both flowers and leaves; other trees have two types of buds, one type carries the flowers, the other carries the leaves.)
Did you know that the tree forms its buds months before we notice them, in the summer, while it is green and growing?
There is a great lesson in that:
Project ahead when you are basking in the sun and in your success, when you feel your best. Plan your next cycle of abundance when you are feeling most luxurious.
