Why Be Like A Bamboo?

The bamboo which bends is stronger than the oak which persists.  – Japanese Proverbs


Bamboos proliferate. That’s because they’re bendable and adapt to changing conditions. They’re strong enough but not overly so. They’re beautiful and are used for a myriad purposes.


How bendable are we? Do we stick to our guns? Do we truly try to understand the others’ perspective? Do we allow even our own deeper perspectives to surface? How can we start bending more?

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM bendable!
