“Mindfulness arises when you allow your attention to fall effortlessly on the breathing point like an autumn leaf falling on a lake of still water”- Amit Ray

Leaf is a symbol of life, growth and energy. Most plants get their food and energy through leaves via the process of photosynthesis, we also realize that a plant is growing when the tiny bud turns into a leaf. This is why leaves are considered to be the best example of growth. Green leaves represent renewal, fertility, hope and optimism. When you take an early morning walk around these fresh and beautiful leaves, you automatically feel good.

Leaves not only represent life but they also represent death. When the leaves fall each autumn, they represent death and sadness. They signify that all good things must come to an end. They also convey the message that “Every ending is always a new beginning “, once you start seeing this ending as an opportunity rather than as a punishment it would change the way you experience life.

Apart from symbolizing “The Circle of Life”, leaf also teaches us that you should never ignore the smallest member of a community. Sometimes that smallest member can turn out to be the most crucial and important element of a community or the society.

Once you are done drawing the leaves and their stems, start filling one of the stems with swirl designs. Draw them across the whole stem. With the help of a marker then darken these swirls.
