Moved into a rental this year and have a small acacia in the backyard, never did ID it but my girlfriend identified it as A. obusifolia without knowing obtisifolias special properties.

Hard to tell but gerbil probably has the best guess there.
Maybe a.stricta?
Certainly not any obtusifolia ive ever seen!

Humans have been in the grip of pain for eons,ever since they fell from the state of grace, entered the realm of time and mind, and lost awareness of Being. At that point, they started to perceive themselves as meaningless fragments in an alien universe, unconnected to the Source and to each other. - Eckhart Tolle
