Personal Witch Trial
Our own personal and figurative witch trials provide us with divine insight into our spirituality. Often, we stretch our limits, test new methods and thought patterns, yet use the same tired concepts to measure the distance between the old and new experiences. Punishing ourselves through negativity and doubt, suffocates our potential and dares to challenge our quest for advancement. As we recognize the enemy within ourselves, we discover the forces at work against us are superficial and weak, and like the witch trials, based on fear and the unwillingness to move away from our suffering and the status quo.

Moving tree branches
My friends helped me trim the dead wood and some limbs off my trees. Then, we carried them to the back fence, to remain until the scheduled debris collection by the city.
When I look at the aspects of myself I no longer need or are dead within in, I'm thankful to separate them from who I am. I can pile up the parts of me that no longer serve me and gratefully discard them.
I retain the integrity of my being without destroying or felling the stature of my nature.
