Enjoy this video of bamboo swaying in the breeze. Think about it as a metaphor for going through life. We often think we need to be immovable in our thinking, or that we always need to be strong, for ourselves, for others.
“Our concept of strength is, it doesn’t move, it doesn’t break,” says Dan Smith, who owns Smith & Fong, the largest manufacturer of bamboo plywood in the United States. “The Chinese concept is, you’ve got to bend with things. If you don’t bend, you break. Bamboo’s strength is in its ability to bend, and that’s the miracle.” -Newsweek.com 4/12/08
Sway and bend. Enjoy your #MindfulMonday and every day in between.
