COMMITMENT BEFORE EGO
The wood that best reflects this tenet is Manzanita – A strong hearty tree that grows in some of the most barren environments. Where other things have difficulty surviving, Manzanitas continue to grow and branch outward. A commitment driven by a powerful context will flourish like the Manzanita tree.
The symbol that represents this tenet is the Coyote – In Native American mythology, the Coyote is the trickster, the clever one who often tricks himself with his own cleverness.
