The Upside Down Tree is a space where I share my thoughts, questions, and insights, and explore spirituality, self-improvement, literature, psychology, and education. Through my research, learning, and experience, I expand my mind and refine my understanding of the truth. For the benefit of my family, friends, and anyone else who lands here, I discuss my ideas and inspirations.

 אמר רבי אלעזר ברבי צדוק למה צדיקים נמשלים בעולם הזה לאילן שכולו עומד במקום  טהרה ונופו נוטה למקום טומאה - קידושין דף מ ע''ב

Rabbi Elezar son of Rabbi Tzadok says to what are the righteous in this world compared? To a tree standing completely in a pure place and its branches stretching into an impure place (Kiddushin 40B)

והיה כאץ שתול על פלגי מים אשר פירו יתן בעתו ועלהו לא יובל וכל אשר יעשה יצליח - תהלים א:ג

The righteous one is like a tree planted on streams of water which yields its fruit in its time and its leaf never withers and whatever it produces thrives (Psalms 1:3)

A person is like an upside down tree, rooted in a metaphysical, spiritual reality, and extending downwards into the physical, material world. A person’s thoughts, words, and actions are sustained by a continuous connection and flow from both beyond and within.
