The Sun does not lower itself to the tree to impart upon it its life giving energy, it forces the tree to strive upwards, urging it to break its current limitations. The very same life giving energies would up close destroy the tree, as its gentle warmth turned into a blazing inferno. The full power of the Sun is far to great for the tree to experience in its current form. The suns majesty becomes the inspirational force behind the Trees lofty aspirations. In this way the Sun serves life, and its power is a driving force growth, not a destructive agent of death.
