I liked the part about if you aren't in right relationship with things, you wither and die. Kind of morbid sounding but it puts an important perspective on things for me.

I have mixed feelings about this one. I think she has a very good point about the "right relationship" concept.

What struck me - is that she totally ignored the fact that most acorns are squirrel food... and how does that fit into the "meant to be an oak tree" concept? maybe most acorns are meant to be food and only some transcend that life purpose and become an oak tree... but who is to say that becoming the tree IS the higher purpose - maybe becoming a squirrel who then is eaten by an owl - is a much higher purpose for an acorn - starting off as a simple seed and becoming an owl... that sounds like evolution to me!

So, what's my higher purpose really? Am I looking to be food for the Gods? Or am I just trying to grow into something larger that will make more of me?

Also, she really got me thinking. And then there's the question of choice - acorns don't really have choices - do they? It's be a tree, be food, or die. We, on the other hand, have the appearance of choices, don't we? or do we really?
