True strength is not solid steel, immovable & heavy. True strength bends and bows like the bamboo, deeply rooted, but never breaking.
Stay centered but flexible. Be rooted in your heart, in your inner strength, in your core truth, your wisdom, your divine guidance, but allow your limbs to blow and dance in the wind.
Being still and centered in your heart while flowing and adapting to life is one of the keys to happiness. It's something that takes practice. When you feel threatened, unsafe, unsettled, unsure or lost is when you need to do this the most - and when you will be most likely not to do it.
The next time you feel yourself slipping out of alignment take a deep breath. Visualize deep and strong roots in your heart. Bright white roots that connect to God and to your Highest Self. Breathe in, root, center and go from there.
