The idea is that we are moving away from needing a single figure to represent humanity's connection to the Divine (God). The Divine lives and evolves though all of life, as us, through us. Our notion of separateness from that is our fall from grace, it is our ego, it results in our suffering (hell). Seriously believing in that illusion of separation, as an ego, is trying to be a separate god, instead of aligning with and being an expression of the ONE living God, the source of all.
The tree represents the many branches of the Christ being in all of us, within the circle of oneness (God). Recognize it and allow love and kindness to shine through you to others, and to all life. The stairs represent the work it can take to relinquish the habits of egoic "separation". There is never any actual separation - it is just a notion we take seriously and that causes our problems. The Global problems are a symptom of this growing out of control.
