Prepared by the boiling method.

 

Indication

 

Those who are doing good work, are following the calling of their life and who hope to do something of importance, and this often for the benefit of humanity.

Affirmation

 

Life does not demand of us unthinkable sacrifice; it asks us to travel its journey with joy in our heart and to be a blessing to those around, so that if we leave the world just that trifle better for our visit, then have we done our work.

 

Collected Writings p143

 

Habitat notes

 

General

 

Devastated by the Dutch Elm Disease of the 1960s and 1970s there are few mature elms left in Europe. They were found in hedgerows, by woods and roads.

 

Britain

 

Elm once grew throughout Britain and was a very common sight. Today young trees are struggling to survive but the disease is still attacking many of them.

 

Emotional state

 

For those who are very capable and often carry great responsibility but occasionally feel unable to face the magnitude of their tasks. Thus they are sometimes overwhelmed, falter and momentarily lose confidence. It is as if they have temporarily lost their connection and this causes them great discomfort and distress.
