Promise of a new Day

…you must remember that an arbitrary power is like most other things which are very hard, very liable to be broken.
—Abigail Adams—
Sway is built into tall buildings so they won’t break. Rigid structures are never as strong as flexible ones. The strongest minds are also the most nimble, the most ready to change and to include new information.

We only see one little slice of reality. How can we know what’s right for others? Our spirits will be strong to the extent that we can keep them flexible, ready to incorporate new energies and to make fresh associations. To be flexible doesn’t mean to be wishy-washy or indecisive; often people who refuse to grow will say they want to “remain flexible.” But one can be flexible and still have strong direction, generosity, and broad tolerance for others growth. What cannot bend may break.I’ll respect the truth of your living, growing spirit. Your reality can be your gift to me.
