I call this "The Spirit of the Cedars"
...it is a marvelous woodcarving
that I have "planted" at the back of my garden,
at the edge of the cedar woods....
To Me he exemplifies the spirits of the woods:
tall, straight, strong, ancient,
reminding us there is a spirit in all created things
and this spirit deserves the respect of all the rest of creation.

I created thee rich,
why dost thou bring thyself down to poverty?
Noble I made thee, wherewith dost thou abase thyself?
Out of the essence of knowledge I gave thee being,
why seekest thou enlightenment from anyone beside Me?
Out of the clay of love I molded thee,
how dost thou busy thyself with another?
Turn thy sight unto thyself,
that thou mayest find Me standing within thee,
mighty, powerful and self-subsisting.
.....Bahá'u'lláh,The Hidden Words of Baha'u'llah
