the willow bends with the wind
I yield to life’s sway
and never break.
“Man, when living, is soft and tender; when dead, he is hard and tough. All animals and plants when living are tender and delicate; when dead they become withered and dry.
Therefore it is said: the hard and tough are parts of death; the soft and tender are parts of life.”~Lao Tzu
“The mind of an enlightened human being is flexible and adaptable.
The mind of the ignorant person is conditioned and fixed.”~Ajahn Sumedho
Don’t be hard, like death. Stay soft, and flexible in mind and spirit🥀
