To the guardian spirits of the Earth, may this tree bring balance and harmony, standing strong against the tide of time. May it be a source of joy in the spirit of nature, nuturing the creatures who take sanctuary in the roots and boughs. Let the benefits reach far beyond where our memories have long faded.

For all the Tree Beings who have fallen because of human greed

With deep gratitude and reverence for the spirit in all life, I dedicate this tree to the sparkling light and radiant love of the nature spirit kingdom with whom we are inspired, guided and nurtured. May the life of this sacred tree be blessed. May it's loving presence bring blessings to this land and to all who dwell here; and it's wisdom be felt over all the Earth.

In gratitude for my daughters, my ancestors of the land, my Guardians and Companions, and looking towards a golden autumn.

Fear is temporary, regret lasts forever. Always follow your dreams.

May all of human kind be happy and well. May the great noble lords protect the earth in every way by the path of just virtue. May there be perpetual joy for those who know the real nature of things. May all the worlds be happy. May the rains fall on time and may the earth yield it's produce in abundance. May this country be free from disturbances and may the knowers of the truth be free from fear.
