Judging others on their faults stems from an exaggerated sense of selfness, and leads to a misunderstanding of differences, so we must return to the balance of nature in order to gain insight from the soul of the world to help us better achieve a sense of security and overcome our separation from one another, by involving ourselves with environmental guardianship we are essentially evolving toward the healing of the pain of the planet and all of its inhabitants. The purpose of this is in a question; how can we know truth before acting it out? Even an age of suffering has a transcendent element to it.
In the sense of spiritual botany, a plant is divided into symbolic sections that create correspondences to a magical nature:
Root: command, control, and bind
Crown: transition and connecting opposites
Stem/Trunk: changing perspective and new insights
Leaves: empowering and energizing
Bud: opportunities and potential
Fruit: completion and reflection
Seed: continuation and preservation
These correspondences can be applied when planning how to use a plant for a specific magical intent.
