When you become defensive, blame others, and do not accept and surrender to the moment, your life meets resistance. Any time you encounter resistance, recognize that if you force the situation, the resistance will only increase. You don't want to stand rigid like a tall oak that cracks and collapses in the storm. Instead, you want to be flexible, like a reed that bends with the storm and survives.
Completely desist from defending your point of view. When you have no point to defend, you do not allow the birth of an argument. If you do this consistently -- if you stop fighting and resisting -- you will fully experience the present, which is a gift. Someone once told me, "The past is history, the future is a mystery, and this moment is a gift. That is why this moment is called 'the present'."
I have seen wind break a tree that bends while leaving others that do not bend untouched.. After every windstorm there are broken branches scattered everywhere. I think, unlike a tree we have a choice to either bend or break, or duck behind a windscreen.
Strengths are weaknesses and weaknesses are strengths depending on the situation.
I agree adaptation is necessary at times, but it should not be made a rule that becomes as rigid as a tree in the storm.
I believe this means to Evoke that over time a small wind can make a big change.
While I agree with the observations regarding flexibility, resilence, adaptable, etc., there is a fact that everyone has missed. The tree that is highly flexible must also be rooted deeply or in a forest where the root systems intertwine and provide additional strenght. A high rise building that moves up to 9 meters at the top requires a very strong foundation. A person who can bend with the circ***tances must have core values and mindsets that are deeply rooted.,

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
