Tree - symbol for the universe

The tree is found in most spiritual traditions as a symbol for the universe. All creatures have a role to play on this tree, anywhere from the roots to the fruits, including the trunk, the branches, the leaves and the flowers. Everything that exists, all activities, all realms find their place on the tree of life. At different times of the year, the leaves, flowers and fruits fall from the tree; they decompose and become humus, which is gradually absorbed by the roots. It is the same with beings. When human beings die, they return to the primeval earth, but soon they reappear in some part of the tree. Nothing is lost, beings are forever disappearing and reappearing on the cosmic tree of life.
