There is no capturing the essence of this solitary tree. Whenever you think you have it, it's gone. It's no different than yourself.

"So the mind, which is of time, cannot receive the timeless. So the mind must be completely still, empty, without any movement in any direction. And that can only take place with a mind that is not occupied--not occupied with the 'more,' with a problem, with worry, with escapes; not conditioned in any belief, in any image, in any experience. It is only when the mind is totally free, then only is there a possibility of immense profound stillness, and in that stillness that which is eternal comes into being. That is meditation." - J. Krishnamurti, 'How Do You Approach the Problems of Living?'
