'the trees in the storm don't try to stand up tall and erect. they allow themselves to bend and be blown with the wind. they understand the power of letting go. those trees and those branches that try too hard to stand up strong and straight are the ones that break'

---julia butterfly hill from 365 presecriptions for the soul, (daily messages of inspiration and hope) by dr. bernie siegel

I've broken MANY times before. It's a lesson I'm still learning, but I'm getting better

Thanks for the reminder Ron...

The mark of a moderate man
is freedom from his own ideas.
Tolerant like the sky,
all-pervading like sunlight,
firm like a mountain,
supple like a tree in the wind,
he has no destination in view
and makes use of anything
life happens to bring his way.

Nothing is impossible for him.
Because he has let go,
he can care for the people's welfare
as a mother cares for her child.

--from the 59th Chapter of the Tao De Ching

I think that's what last week's burn out break I took was about. I felt like I needed to just make a strategic retreat..do a little bending then whip right back just as strong as before...but now with a fully functional verceprocating interchannel decimalism transmolecular neutralizer! (Just made that up, but it sounds impressive doesn't it?!)

there is an incredible amount of wisdom there. it kinda narrows down the choices ultimately on how we choose to re/act.

acceptance mode is definitely the way to go.

thanks for sharing your perspective.
