The Tree

I sat in meditation.
When I opened my eyes, I saw a tree growing into the side of the hill.
It appeared to be growing crooked, because it was rooted on the side of the hill. 
I meditated on love and when I opened my eyes the tree seemed different.
It seemed to be happily leaning forward into its sideways circumstance.
I smiled and understood it from a different perspective.
So moved was I that I decided to walk over to the tree.
When I arrived by its side, I looked up and it appeared neither crooked nor leaning.
It looked straight and strong and no different than any other tree!
