Tree in a cage

This tree has been in a wire mesh cage for years. When we removed it I couldn’t help notice how the branches are turned inwards to cater for the cage. Brought to mind how when any cages of restriction, like old belief systems are removed. We stay that way for a while until the realisation comes that we are actually already free.
