A Case for Intervention: The Tree and the Vine

by David Nova [from Deus Nexus | 8 July 2014]

Sometimes working with nature can provide surprising spiritual insights. I came upon one such insight working in my own back yard. What I discovered is that the example of the tree and the vine is the perfect analogy for a world suffocating under elite control, in desperate need of non-terrestrial intervention.

As a homeowner, I’ve become a somewhat reluctant, part-time gardener  (among my many other duties for which I have too little time.) Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy working outside. Time working outdoors provides positive psychological and spiritual energy.  However, I suppose I was a little naive about the scope of work required to tame my yard, and I have quite a lot of nature to be tamed.

Sometimes it feels like a small, never-ending war.

Case in point: my ongoing battle with the vines that are threatening to take over my yard, of which I have several varieties.  And I’m not just talking about the English ivy that is slowing creeping across the ground.  The real concern are the vines that are slowly killing some of my trees – literally strangling the life out of them.

I was quite surprised by how insidious and predatory these vines seem to be.  I’ve caught the same vine repeatedly sending out a green shoot several feet in midair, reaching towards the same unsuspecting tree, as if they had eyes to see.  Once it reaches the tree, it will quickly grab onto a branch forming a living knot, holding on tight, pulling the tree closer.  Then the vine proceeds to grow into the tree, wrapping around each branch like a snake.  These delicate tendrils grow into thick vines ten times faster than any other plant in my yard.  And the poor defenseless trees, which seem completely blind to the threat, haven’t got a chance.


Vines are among the fastest-growing plants, so they can quickly create major problems and rapidly recover from control efforts. Vines can swiftly spread into new areas, grow to the top of trees or buildings and kill shrubs and lower-growing plants by engulfing them and preventing them from getting light.

When controlling weedy vines, one of the most important things to do is to be prepared for a fight. Once you begin control efforts, you have to be persistent and act frequently for as long as it takes to gain control over or eradicate the vine.

You can see the evolution of this crisis unfold in my backyard – some of the older trees are completely dead, barren of leaves, just black lifeless trucks serving as scaffolding for the vine to thrive and grow. Like some diabolical alien parasite, these vines literally strangle the life out of these trees, fighting for resources, slowly killing them off, as they take over their dead bodies, in essence becoming a new tree made completely of vines. Is this not what the NWO intends to do with all of us?

Invasive plants are alien species that show a tendency to spread out of control. Although not synonymous with “exotic plants,” the “invasive” label is now typically reserved for plants that have been introduced from other regions and spread like wildfire in their new habitats. Indigenous plants that spread rapidly and overpower the competition tend to be referred to now as simply “aggressive,” “thuggish” or “ill-behaved,” in common parlance.

Invasive plants compete so successfully against other plants that they can crowd out their competitors, thus producing a monoculture that discourages the growth of other plant species.


Of course, I have no inclination to eliminate all the vines in my back yard, not that I have the ambition or resources to do so.  Some of them actually serve a useful purpose – they provide me with privacy.

I recently discovered another small tree that was half dead.  There was absolutely no way to pull the vines off of it – they were tightly entwined and braided around every tree branch.  To save the tree I had to do something drastic.  I had to cut off the base of the vine, killing the entire vine’s parasitic structure in one blow.  I was shocked just how thick the vine had become, almost as thick as the tree truck itself.  If I hadn’t acted, if I hadn’t intervened, this small tree would soon be dead.

I think most of us agree that gardening would be a lot more fun if we didn’t have to deal with weeds.

Weeds are nature’s way of reminding us who is really in charge. Stop mowing the lawn and weeding beds for just one summer, and you will see what I mean. Landscapes and gardens exist only because we are willing to put in continuous effort to maintain them.

Anyone with a lawn to mow or a garden to tend knows that battling weeds can be a time consuming endeavor. Weeds can be just as insidious and as virulent as vines. I avoid using toxic chemicals in my yard, like Monsanto’s Round Up.  (Though some days I just want to break down and nuke the entire yard with it.)

The New Testament of the Bible is chock full of parables related to gardening and agriculture.  It’s a language that a culture (absent of modern technology) that worked closely with the natural world, well understood.  Yet we’ve come to denigrate any pre-industrial culture as primitive and backwards.  But perhaps it is our science and technology that have caused us to become blind to some of these natural truths.  Just like the trees, our modern society has become blind to the deadly vines that have infiltrated nearly every aspect of our lives.

Like most people raised in a Christian tradition, I was vaguely aware of the parable below without having ever read it.  As young adults, many of us rejected the inherent judgement in this sort of parable, because we were taught by the church that we were all sinners simply because we had perfectly natural sexual thoughts and feelings.

However, reading it today, it takes on a whole new meaning. Those of us who are awake know that evil exists, beyond anything we ever conceived of as naive children or as self-absorbed young adults.

Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43
Parable of the Weeds Among Good Plants


24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

28 “ ‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

29 “ ‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’ ”

The Parable of the Weeds Explained

36 Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”

37 He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.

40 “As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. 42 They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.”

Now, anyone who knows me knows that I’m not “a fire and brimstone” kind of person.  I don’t believe in Final Judgement.  I don’t believe in eternal punishment in Hell (the fiery furnace – as much as some members of the illuminati may well deserve it.)  I don’t believe in a judgmental God.  I believe that we are all aspects of Source responsible for judging ourselves.  I believe that when our souls stand naked in the light of full transparency and infinite love we can’t help but judge our own earthly lives and either seek to turn away from that knowledge in shame or embrace forgiveness and transcendence.  And there are other, lesser planes of existence where self-deception is still maintained, self-deception being the control mechanism of evil.

But if we are no longer given any more chances to turn away, to hide from our own darkness, to return to Earth and do it all over again in ignorance, well then we are basically left with the pain of our own rude awakening, the full knowledge of our deeds – and that would indeed be a type of Hell.  It is the ego that rationalizes and deceives itself.  Our spirit only recognizes truth.

The Ra Material: The Law of One goes into great detail about the process of The Harvest, which we also know as Ascension.

 6.14 Questioner: I think it would be appropriate to discover how the Law of One acts in this transfer of beings to our planet and the action of harvest?

Ra: I am Ra. The Law of One states simply that all things are one, that all beings are one. There are certain behaviors and thought-forms consonant with the understanding and practice of this law. Those who, finishing a cycle of experience, demonstrate various grades of distortion of that understanding of thought and action will be separated by their own choice into the vibratory distortion most comfortable to their mind/body/spirit complexes. This process is guarded or watched by those nurturing beings who, being very close to the Law of One in their distortions, nevertheless have the distortion towards active service.

Thus, the illusion is created of light, or more properly but less understandably, light/love. This is in varying degrees of intensity. The spirit complex of each harvested entity moves along the line of light until the light grows too glaring, at which time the entity stops. This entity may have barely reached third density or may be very, very close to the ending of the third-density light/love distortion vibratory complex. Nevertheless, those who fall within this octave of intensifying light/love then experience a major cycle during which the opportunities are many for the discovery of the distortions which are inherent in each entity and, therefore, the lessening of these distortions.

What this means is that we are afforded perfect freewill to choose our own path, to embrace as much light and love as we are currently able, to move up the spiraling staircase of Heaven and ascend to the level that we are able to manifest within ourselves.  The only thing preventing our personal ascension is ourselves, our inability to awaken and open ourselves up to love.

However, as Ra states, even the path of Light is a distortion of True Being, of  Source, as it is still a path of duality, a partial separation of polarization.

According to Ra, the Earth will/is in the process of ascending to positive 4th Density (a raised Earth).  Those who are unable to withstand this change or these new vibrations will eventually leave Earth and incarnate on a different planet where they will repeat the 3rd Density cycle or incarnate on a negative 4th Density world (which is basically Hell).

What I find remarkable about the Ra Material is how ultimately compassionate its spiritual system truly is.  Even those entities who choose the Service-to-Self path (what we might judge as the dark path) are still given every opportunity to learn and return to Source/Creator/Oneness someday. There is no FINAL judgment.

10.9 Questioner: When a graduation occurs [and an] entity or entities move [at] the end of a cycle from one planet to another, by what means do they go from one planet to the other?

Ra: I am Ra. In the scheme of the Creator, the first step of the mind/body/spirit/totality/beingness is to place its mind/body/spirit complex distortion in the proper place of love/light. This is done to ensure proper healing of the complex and eventual attunement with the totality/beingness complex. This takes a very variable length of your time/space. After this is accomplished the experience of the cycle is dissolved and filtered until only the distillation of distortions in its pure form remains. At this time, the harvested mind/body/spirit/totality/beingness evaluates the density needs of its beingness and chooses the more appropriate new environment for either a repetition of the cycle or a moving forward into the next cycle. This is the manner of the harvesting, guarded and watched over by many.

It is because of my insight with the Tree and the Vine, by my own necessity to intervene, severing the vine to save the tree, that I believe some form of intervention is essential and inevitable on planet Earth.  This intervention may be divine, angelic, extraterrestrial, human, or some combination.  However, I don’t think that we should expect to see fireworks in the sky and hear trumpets in the air.  I believe any obvious form of intervention will be done behind the scenes, under the radar, careful not to draw attention to itself.  Just like the tree, the world at large may in fact be completely unaware of the savior that cuts down the vine and rescues its existence.  Meanwhile, those of us who are awake may see the signs of it everywhere we look.  And those who wish to see only fear will still see their own fears manifest.

Why hide this intervention?  Because each one of us is our own savior.  Our individual branch of the greater tree is our own responsibility to care for. We all have a part to play in the general health of the tree.  We are here to continue to grow, to keep growing.  We are not here to wait for an invisible gardener to save us, even though it may be an entirely necessary task.  Our individual responsibility to keep the tree healthy, to support one another, is every bit as important as the axe that strikes the vine.
