Who plants a tree, plants a hope!

Motto: “The trees are God’s great alphabet:
With them He writes in shining green
Across the world his thoughts serene.”

Due to this programme, we had the opportunity to check “plant a tree” on our list of “must do’s in this life time”. If you would ask us why it was a life goal for us to plant a tree, the answer is very simple: a tree is the endless effort of the Earth to speak to the sky, it is the bearer of our expectations for the better.

Planting those baby-trees is the most precious tribute we owe to nature because the tree represents the means through which life tricks death. “The groves were God’s first temple”, or at least that’s what they say, so our inner selves feel much more peaceful knowing we’ve reached a temporarily equilibrium state of spirit.

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes, you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the trees - for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy trees are…
