What we call strength in the language of this world is weakness in the language of spirituality

Calaveras Big Trees State Park 10 Lao Tzu used to say that in a storm big trees stand rigidly and so they are uprooted. Small plants bend with the wide; the storm blows over them. The roots of big trees are overturned, they are laid flat on the ground; but small plants stand as straight as they did before. The storm gives new life to the plants, but it destroys the trees which are stubborn and proud. It is the same storm! the weak are saved and the mighty are destroyed……… ….What we call strength in the language in this world is weakness in the language of spirituality. And that which we call weakness in the language of this world is strength in the language of spirituality. To bow down is weakness in this world: “come what may, do not bow down to anything.” In the language of spirituality, bowing down is an invitation for the energy of strength to fill you. And one who bows down is filled from all sides: energy from the whole universe starts  flowing towards him. He becomes like a vessel. His invitation id heard everywhere.   – Osho from ‘The Voice of Silence’
