Essences of Nature: Embrace Softness to Find Strength
Essences of Nature: Embrace Softness to Find Strength Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci
We want to feel strong. We want to feel strong to feel safe. We may feel that the stronger we are, the better we can take care of ourselves. So we exercise. We take our supplements. We try to get enough sleep. We pay extra attention to the type of fuel we put in our bodies. We build our immune systems. We create a personal fortress.
We may feel that the stronger we are, the greater and more powerful we are. However, our very strength can become our greatest weakness. Our powerful muscles may not have the flexibility to give. We can only move so far. We can’t reach into our deeper places by force. We need to let up to let down. We need the flexibility to go further and deeper. We need to learn where to give. We need to feel the softness and suppleness of our true strength. Where can we be strong enough to be soft?
