【As a Tree 】
Be as a tree. A tree that stands strong, no matter the wind or rain or the sun’s strong rays. For the wind does not define a tree. For the rain does not define a tree. For the sun does not define a tree. A tree stands tall -firmly, simply, rooted in soil. A tree offers leaves to summer winds and but bare branches to winter winds. A tree awaits the coming of the rain and waits out the drying of the rain. A tree receives of the sun and returns again glory to the earth. A tree is a tree and no more, despite the elements and despite their absence. Be as the tree and stand strong -despite what may, and despite what may not.

In aphorism, proverb on 20120520 at 23:58

When progress seems to abscond,
when digression seems to supersede,
it might just seem, it might just be –
that progress has but skipped and leaped, indeed.

What force does pillage now, patience is gifted soon.

A step forward is one more than infinite retreats, absent.

Headway exists where setbacks are stalled.

What gives pique the impression of digression, or even regression, patience may find progression.

Have patience when the going gets tough, with wisdom to know that you are just getting going.

A plea for unnecessary help is a terrible waste of potential.

With pride is a toil spoiled.

The opposite of fragrant is not foul, but insipid.

A stone is but a jewel’s throw away; a jewel is but a stone’s throw away.

The fool keep the stone and so lose the jewel.

Covetous is cowardice.

but one.

Who discovers the world without discovering the self has fooled oneself twice.
