THE TREE LADDER
The saint, the seer, and the shaman,
the poet and the philosopher,
all have conceptualized movement
into higher realms of consciousness,
movement from opacity towards
spiritual freedom. In songs and
scripture, rituals and architecture,
to climb is to make a journey,
to express faith in divine-human
communication. The cosmic tree is
like a ladder between earth and heaven.
