I'm at home / retreat in the front yard driveway. Suddenly I notice a rogue tree in the distance to the north. I'm scared, and I feel personally threatened as if the tree is sentient and intends malice toward me.
I think that this is unbecoming of one who is training to be Enlightened. The other Buddhas in this retreat would not be afraid, and I should not be either.
Forget that. I walk quickly around the garage side of the house to the little corner formed by the porch and the garage. I hope that the tree will attack the other Buddhists and somehow not find me.
