"There is a season for all things. There is a beginning and an end for all things. There cannot be a furtherance or continuation without an end. As the trees lose their leaves in the fall, is this the end, the death of the trees, or is it the beginning of the new cycle in another year, or another life of the tree? Think of this. See the tree as the soul, and with each coming season the development of the soul, and with each coming year the growth of the soul. For year by year, life by life, the soul grows ever upward, ever outward, demonstrating that it is of God, and it is becoming more and more, never less. And it puts down good roots so they can raise its branches high. It becomes sturdy and true. Be like the tree. Understand that it is necessary for the soul to enter in through that of the seasons, so there can be that of the transition, year to year, of growth. And simply, the physical life (as you would know it) is but a simple breath in the life of the soul, for the soul is eternal. And if this life is but similar to a breath in the life of the soul, what’s the concern? For you are eternal; you are of God."
