Love
This word as it stands has no height, width or breadth to speak of, yet it holds all in the form of depth. It is almost as if the “O” in its making is the opening to look deeper for its validation and truest meaning (as if there were levels about the essence of love). To try and grasp this concept think of love first as you would (given your form as human) then remove yourself from that which you think you are to try and understand love for what it is as it stands

And with that notion at hand, how has it come to be that without actual physical contact, turmoil or bickering, all these trees have flourished to form a self-sufficient community where all reach their highest potential?

Should we not then constitute such thoughts and others similar as elements that make up love? What we as humans always do is place comprehension in a box labelled as human understanding. We take love and assume that it is a human emotion when in fact love is a word. All that matters is the connection the word implies
