Plants have been used as symbols and ways to connect to the Divine. The Original Testament had Moses learn from a certain type of burning bush, some say it was the Bramble Bush, known as the Holy Bush.
Stoking the flame of divine law, Moses was able to inspire millions, even those not of 12 Tribes including: Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Bahais, Mormons, and many others.
Wisdom is often the price of failure.
