It’s simple to consider leaves falling from the angle of the host—the tree. Timber maintain onto their leaves, after which lose them each Fall, proper? That’s what we’ve at all times been taught.

Timber innately “know” that they’ll launch their leaves each Autumn. They don’t burn up additional Qi to hold on tightly, simply because the leaves don’t ache to keep up their connection. Timber innately know their branches would turn out to be too heavy below the burden of Winter snow and that the leaves’ veins would fill with water and freeze, stopping meals manufacturing come Spring.

By placing themselves first, timber permit their leaves to stretch out and nourish all the ecosystem.
Leaves are the food-producing components of the tree. Whereas leafless timber can not make meals, they’re nonetheless very a lot alive. With out meals, they sit dormant and relaxation till new leaves can develop and unfurl in Spring. So take their lead. Do one thing only for you.
