In any new situation- starting a new job, moving house, starting at a new school- we must clear the new tree of snakes- attend to immediate problems, and situations that could become problems. Then we will be able to fully relax in the shade of our new place of safety.
If one does not clear the tree of snakes, the new situation will not be a place of relaxation until one clears the tree of snakes. they will not be able to properly rest as they know there could be snakes around which they're unaware of. Their group will start to notice, and resent them, nervous, too, as they fear hidden snakes.
Do not wait until a snake is near to clear the tree of snakes.
This habit will make you very powerful in social situations, because you will be someone who isn't afraid of dealing with an issue straight away.
Someone who deals with hard things first spends more time living easy. They remove bad things immediately so that that they and their group can rest in peace.
