Peaceful power

In springtime, rich green foliage and flowers in a rainbow of colors burst into being. The magnificence is all born with no effort.

Flowers do not try to grow, nor strive to display their colors. They simply allow themselves to unfold according to their true nature, with spectacular results.

Wind stirs and mighty storms thunder across mountains, plains and valleys. It all happens because nature is simply being what nature is.

Gravity does not make any attempt to hold planets in their orbits, yet the orbits continue on and on. Seasons follow seasons, waves arrive upon shorelines in never-ending succession, not from trying but from the very nature of reality.

What beauty, what power within can you allow to unfold in similar fashion? What achievements can you give to life without the need to strive against the truth of who you are?

Enjoy the gentle breeze as it effortlessly touches your face. Learn from the peaceful power, allowing your own unique beauty and value to spring to life in its flow.

— Ralph Marston
