A tree with no fruit

There is no wisdom in negativity—some shard of cleverness, perhaps, but nothing to pacify or radiate the mind. Negativity divides and empties. Love multiplies and fulfills.

There is no wisdom in reactivity. A re-action is a repetition—robotic, hypnotic, predictable, conditioned, unconscious. Every reaction is a kind of do-over. But really, there are no do-overs. We cannot step twice into the same river.
