No Defense

Once again, as nature becomes my analogy for life, the fact that nature never needs to defend itself crept into my thoughts today.

The delicate, gorgeous fern leaf never has a need to defend how long it takes to unfurl, how wide its leaves stretch, or how large it will grow. It simply is, and is allowed to be what it is. And all other nature around it does not question the fern either. Nature is allowing and forgiving, and 100% is-what-it-is.

Not so much with humans, but now that it has strongly come into my awareness, my new task at hand is to stop standing in defense of myself, and to also be more accepting of others. Thank you Mother Nature – (and Robert).

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really one thing which I feel I’d never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking ahead to your subsequent post, I’ll attempt to get the hold of it!

    You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually one thing that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely huge for me. I am having a look ahead to your subsequent submit, I will try to get the grasp of it!

    1. My husband was well-known to say “drop the rope”. When we don’t feel a need for tug-o-war with others, the struggle falls away. For me, it came down to silencing not only my brain chatter, but also my mouth – learning to speak only what is necessary in a loving way.

    You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really something which I feel I would by no means understand.
