Pamela’s Weekly Words of Wisdom: Let the Tree Release Its Branch… Then You Can Use It

During the Edo era in Japan (1603-1868), the only wood they’d use from the forest was if a branch had fallen from a tree.  In the same way, we don’t pick fruit before it’s ripe.  We don’t wrench the tomato from the vine until it’s ready to give itself to us.  Perhaps, then, the message for us in present-day as well is, don’t cut down the wood until the tree is ready to release its branch.
