The heart is never heavy, it’s the mind that swings in the noose of moods and states. When the noose tightens around the mind, that is the time when one takes refuge in the great oak that holds the mind. If we can relax and accept the “hanging” and just let the mind swing there, not resisting, not being upset with being upset, anxious about being anxious, if we can stop resisting the rope, that cessation of resistance releases the tension and the noose of the Mind State. We realize that we are part of the True, that we are the Heart full of peach and strength instead of the mind hanging from a rope for some crime it doesn’t know it committed.
The Hanging Tree. Is for the mind that is hung by the rope of time, its past and future. Only the Tree is the Now that is beyond Time. The mind swings in the wind of time. We suffering not knowing where the Tree of Life is.
The irony is that Adam (us) believes he has been kicked out of the Garden of Now and can’t find the Tree of Life that lives there. He thinks he is wandering in exile, but in truth he is just hanging from the Tree of Life in the Garden of Paradise by the rope of the Judging Mind, that apple he bit that divided the world into winners and losers.
