The Tree Of Life – Remember Happiness Today – From Roots To Crown – Day 01

Howdy folks,

You can read more about my concept of the Tree Of Life here.

Some of my thoughts on this sketch of the Tree Of Life:

  • The roots are the reasons or motivators for doing something. With growing roots, you get a better hold on earth and know what you are living for, so every defeat will be less likely to really defeat you.
  • The layers of the stock are your preferences so you will get a larger radius of interest the more layers of stock grow. You will know more precisely what you like about life.
  • The crown and especially the leaves represent the different kinds of impact your preferences (which lead to a certain kind of behaviour) have on your environment. With every leave growing you know about one more thing you are here on earth. With the feedback you get by other people (the sun), your impact (leaves) can produce energy to make you grow and improve.

Today my (logical) chain goes like this:

  • Root: Challenge
  • Stock: Philosophizing, Analyzing & Solving Problems, Research
  • Impact: Making a change for a better tomorrow, Discussion & Inspiration, Another problem getting solved, improve living & working quality, creating an understanding & make people think

What is your root of the day and which layers of your stock are built on it? Which leaves are connected to them?

And as if this would not be enough questions, here comes the Remember Happiness Today question for Material Monday:

Sushi in Kasan - will tell you why before Christmas for sure

Eating Sushi in Kasan – will tell you why before Christmas for sure

What is your favorite meal and when did you eat it for the last time? Why is it your favorite meal? And which impact does it or do you have eating it on the world and your environment?

Looking forward to reading your comments!

May peace surround you and be happiness your friend,

Chris

The Tree Of Life – Improving Remember Happiness Today And The Bunch Of Life

Howdy folks,

today, I want to present to you my concept of the “Tree Of Life”. In case you don’t know my series Remember Happiness Today and the Bunch Of Life I recommend you to check them out briefly to know what I am talking about. However, I will try to give you a short introduction:

  • Remember Happiness Today is a daily series to remember you of happy times six times a week and of a sad time one time a week by asking you questions about your preferences and when you did something you preferred for the last time.
  • Bunch Of Life is a daily series to provide you with the opportunity to think about what is important in your life and be able to spend more time in your preferred way.

Talking to my friend Anasera from Wildersoul, I discovered that there is much more to think about because every preference has some reasons and some impacts. So my plan was to change the Bunch Of Life into a Tree Of Life with the roots as reasons, the stock as preferences and the crown as the impact on other people who are represented by the sun. Have a look at it now please:

Let’s add some of my thoughts on this sketch of the Tree Of Life:

  • The roots are the reasons or motivators for doing something. With growing roots, you get a better hold on earth and know what you are living for, so every defeat will be less likely to really defeat you.
  • The layers of the stock are your preferences so you will get a larger radius of interest the more layers of stock grow. You will know more precisely what you like about life.
  • The crown and especially the leaves represent the different kinds of impact your preferences (which lead to a certain kind of behaviour) have on your environment. With every leave growing you know about one more thing you are here on earth. With the feedback you get by other people (the sun), your impact (leaves) can produce energy to make you grow and improve.

What are your thoughts about this concept? Do I make sense? Looking forward to your feedback, comments and likes.

May peace surround you and be happiness your friend,

Chris

P.S.: Starting tomorrow, I will post one (logical) chain of reason, preference and impact of my Tree Of Life and ask you a question in the style of Remember Happiness Today but combined with the question of reason and impact, so asking you for a (logical) chain of your Tree Of Life. Looking forward to getting to know your (logical) chains of your Tree Of Life!

Series Interruption For Relaunch

Howdy folks,

just a quick post to let you know that I had a very inspiring hangout with my friend Anasera from WilderSoul today who made me think of the TREE of life instead of the bunch of life. I guess I can and I will integrate Remember Happiness Today into this tree of life and hope that you will like it and profit from reading and commenting on it.

For those of you who can't wait to discover what the tree of life is a very rough sketch. Enjoy :)

I will update you next Sunday when I will schedule the posts of this new series for the following week.

Make sure to stay tuned.

Chris
