There is a well known story, that you often see as a Buddha quote:  A man said to the Buddha: "I want happiness" Buddha said :"First, remove the I, that is Ego. Next, remove the want, that is Desire.

No matter how full my head is, when I walk under trees I feel a calmness wash over me. I become awake again, aware of my thoughts, aware of the stress in my body. It is this awareness that makes me feel centered and alive. The trees are mirroring this state.  They stand there, calm, centered, peaceful. They are telling me to let go.  And I remember: I am what observes, not what I observe.
