Haiku Shuukan – revitalize



The bow is life: the source of all energy. The arrow will leave one day. The target is a long way off. But the bow will stay with you, and you must know how to look after it. It requires periods of inaction – a bow that is always armed and braced loses its strength. Therefore, allow it to rest, to recover its firmness; then, when you draw the bow-string, the bow will be content, with all its strength intact.

The Way of the Bow

The Way of the Bow

As is the need of the bow having time to recover … you all need to take time to recover, to relax, to hold back and take it slow.
Go with the flow, follow the signals of your body … when you are exhausted take a break, a nap. When you are feeling sick go to your doctor or go outside into nature breath in the healthy air of Mother Nature’s breath … feel how she revitalizes you and gives you new strength.

Be like the bow …

breath in, breath out
feel the healing energy of Mother Earth –
bow to her glory

I hope you did like this episode. We are still busy with reading Paulo Coelho’s “The Way of the Bow” and we are coming closer to the realization that we all are on that same way, that same path …

This episode is open for your submissions at noon (CET) and will remain open until next Wednesday at noon (CET).
