When something is flexible, for example, a palm tree it can survive massive storms. Its’ roots run deep. Applying this to ourselves, when we know ourselves deeply we can bend without compromising ourselves as we can stay aligned to who we truly are. A palm tree is always a palm tree, it doesn’t resist the storms or become overwhelmed by them.
Seeing ourselves at our best is to, recall a time when we did something that we were really pleased with. What qualities we were using at that time? These are your core qualities. Let go of the externals, by putting down our defences, focusing on the word ‘peace’ and allow ourselves to internally experience peace.
