The Bending Tree
The tree that bends withstands the storm.
The reed that bends withstands the river.
The dancer who bends withstands the dance.
The bending river wears away stone.
The bending fire clears away forests.
A bending soul wears away adversity.
When you let go of controlling the world,
the door of your cell swings open before you.
