I found this article and thought it was very good.

And it came to pass that I beheld that the rod of iron, which my father had seen, was the word of God, which led to the fountain of living waters, or to the tree of life; which waters are a representation of the love of God; and I also beheld that the tree of life was a representation of the love of God ( 1 Ne. 11:25 ).
“The iron rod, or the word of God, led to the love of God. The scriptures — the very book I held in my hands — contained the answer. As though to witness the truth of this, I felt the love of God begin to filter through my lead shield, and I was filled with wonder that I should have such an experience — that I should feel His love in that dark place where I seemed to dwell.”

I thought that maybe we could share some of our experiences while reading the Book of Mormon.
Wise men still seek him.

Interesting.  I like how both the tree and the water represent God's love.  I find it interesting that God's love is always flowing, but only if we drink it up does that love grow within us just like the tree..
