Whose loyalty is more powerful? That of the animal caged or that of the creature that returns and stays at will?

【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.

The best of opportunities are not without the greatest of compromises.

The peaceful heart can find stillness amidst the chaos, can be at ease in the face of difficulty, is a home unto itself wherever it goes.

Balance cannot be found at the extremes, but is always found by returning to the core, by finding the center. Where balance can be found with outstretched limb, stronger still the core must remain.

The fool’s idea of freedom is a world without rules and the fool’s idea of power is to rule the world.

A world without enforcement is but a world without rules.

Freedom must reach all, if it is to touch even one.

The fool love a home without leaving it; the wise love a home by returning to it.

《rainbow》
Lofty and crooked,
united yet divided –
rainbow in the sky.

《wind》
The wind never stops
pausing only to enjoy
the beauty of stillness.
