Rooted Tree


If you are rooted in love,you are rooted

There is no other way to be rooted

You can have money,you can a house,you can have security,you can have a bank balance;those things will not give you rootedness.They  are  just  substitutes, a poor substitute for love.They may increase your anxiety even more,because once you have physical security-money,  a  social status-you became more and more afraid that these things may be taken from you.Or you become worried about having more and more of these things,because discontent knows no limit.And your basic need was of being rooted.

Love is the earth where one needs to be rooted.Just as trees are rooted in the earth,human beings are rooted in love.Our roots are invisible,so anything visible is not going to help.Money is very visible, a house is very visible,social status is very visible.But we are trees with invisible roots.You will have to find some invisible earth-call it love,call it godliness,call it prayer-but it is going to be something like that, something invisible, intangible,elusive,mysterious. You cannot catch hold of it.On the contrary,you will have to allow it to catch hold of you.



  1. I love your artwork for this series. We are starting a 4 week series titled “rooted”. I would love to use this art as part of a back ground for the series.
    Is that possible and do you have a larger version of this art.

    • no sir I don’t ‘ve a bigger version art as a background, but surely you can use this for your Program series titled as ‘rooted’.

  4. Hi Osho,
    Great image- Did you design it? would you mind if we used it as part of our advertising for a free community conference we’re doing in the UK in 2013?

    The theme will possibly be something like ‘Rooted in community’ and this image would be great as part of the branding to advertise it. The conference will aim to equip community members and professionals in building positive local relationships.
    (if ok, we may like to adjust colour i.e. monochrome to fit with theme colours)

    thank you!
