Think of thoughts like wind. There will be soft breezes and strong hurricane force winds. Some will buffet you. Will you blow down? Only if you think they shouldn’t be there and stand rigidly. The wind has a “right” to blow. The willow tree bends with the breeze. You have a choice: break or bend. Don’t you at times also wish to blow hard? That is allowed, for it goes with the territory. While you stand in the territory, we do not wish you to break. Bend and sway; that is the way, but know that both the tree and the wind arise from pure Being.
