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).
