Trees are such great metaphors for so many things. One day, I was pondering at how every issue has a root--as well as symptoms. Many times, we mistake the symptoms for the root. When this happens, we tend to treat the symptoms instead of the source--which is the equivalent of cutting down a dandelion at ground level. In other words, until the root is taking care of, the issue will pop up again and again.
Card 1: The Root The root of the problem/that which is hidden or unknown.
Card 2:The Trunk Symptoms - How the root is affecting you.
Card 3:The Branches How your relationships and/or health are being affected.
