What Does Bonsai Mean to Me? Bonsai Symbolism in My life
I had two customers ask me this week about the symbolism of Bonsai. As I though about it, I realized Bonsai has multiple meanings to me, that it represents certain experiences and lessons in my life. Events in my life can often be represented by lessons found in various bonsai techniques. I remember my Mother always being very interested in eastern culture. When I was 11 years old I learned about the art from her.
Traditional Bonsai symbolism has certain fundamental concepts. Many of the same lessons apply to my life. These lessons of patience, balance, and harmony are replaying themes throughout my adult life and spiritual evolution as a human on this planet. Also I look back to my youth and remember my mom working hard but always working for herself. Being a small business owner often means working much harder than if you worked for some one else. I remember seeing her asleep at her office computer, working 14 hour days 6 days a week at times. I see this drive in myself and understand why she always emphasized such an importance on technology. She saw way back then that the world would be run by computers by the time I was an adult. That my proficiency in this area would play a big role if I was successful.
When I see the path of my life unfolding to include so many of my desires , I can’t help but feel she is watch over me. My Aunt and business partner Nandi helps make this possible. Although her and my Mother never met I can only imagine how well they would have gotten along. I don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for her support and guidance.
