We are lucky to have several eastern white pines on our property. I visited them today to honor their status as Trees of Peace.
From Wikipedia: The roots of the Tree of Peace stretch in all directions. Called the Great Roots of Peace, they lead those who wish peace back to the source to take shelter.
The Great Peace included "the Good Word which is righteousness in action, bringing justice for all.
Health, which is a sound mind in a sound body, bringing peace on Earth.
Power, which is the establishment of civil authority, bringing with it the increase in spiritual power in keeping with the will of the Master of Life." The bundle of five needles became the symbol of the Five Nations joined together as one. I will look at the eastern white pine quite differently now. 💚 Peace
