Teaching the young to be soft.
Updated: Nov 24, 2018
Nowadays we are geared to bracing up and contracting as though we are forced to engage with harshness and hardness, to be at the forefront of everything we do, to grasp and strive for meanings and accomplishments. Often these are the attitudes that take us further from nature and out intrinsic relationship with it. We learn to control and become arrogant, forcing ourselves on all that surround us. In the end we create this harshness, no longer able to expand and grow.
Train to battle the external trappings. Focus the mind on balancing the body.
Create an inner harshness through the training that prepares you for this external chaos.
Easy things are difficult. Difficult things become easy.
