Originally written in 2012, this is a message I felt bears repeating.
Last week, I experimented with being like a flower and doing so was delightful. Having a positive intention, to be a source of joy for others, brought joy to me.
This week, my experiment is to be like a tree. A tree provides shelter to all and asks nothing in return. A tree stands firm in the Earth, yet is flexible enough to bend with the wind.
This is my intention this week, to be a refuge for others, and to be firm and strong yet flexible when challenges arise.
You are invited to do this experiment too. If you do, I'd appreciate it if you'd send me a message either relating how it went for you, or telling something you learned from the experiment.
