The secret and strength of the willow is in its flexibility. It doesn't rail against circumstances. It gives the appearance of bowing to them but it is inwardly smiling because it knows it will rise again. It places itself near sources of refreshment and nourishment but it also grows deep roots so it is not completely dependent on those sources. When it is seemingly destroyed is when it has the greatest capacity for growth.
Willow doesn't just offer lessons. She does offer practical help and is especially kind to those who are in physical pain but I'll cover that in another post.
In the mean time, stay flexible!
