BAMBOO and 3 Simple Life Lessons

Bamboo & You:

Three Simple Solutions to Any Life Problem

Lessons from Bamboo..

I believe all of nature speaks loudly the lessons we most need to know, but the unique attributes of beautiful Bamboo resonate especially clear the life lessons we most need to hear to live a happy life.
Widely know as a symbol of good luck, a Bamboo plant with “three stalks is considered good for happiness, five for health, two for love, eight for wealth, nine stalks for overall goodness and prosperity in the owner’s life.” Not so widely known is the fact Bamboo is one of the strongest and fastest growing plants on Earth. Bamboo is used in a wide variety of venues such as; food, medicine, construction, paper, fabric, furniture and even music. Want to get solutions to your problems? 

Be like Bamboo and live a happy life. Here’s why…

1. Be Open to Be Strong

Don’t let the hollow tubing in Bamboo deceive you.
What you think may appear weak, is actually strong.
The open cylinders characteristic of bamboo are solid vehicles to transport water
in irrigation systems, surviving tough winters and the hottest of summers.
To receive a new of thinking, being, and doing, we have to be open to receive
like the hollow channels characteristic in bamboo.
Only when we are open to receive, can we be a channel to transport wisdom,
knowledge and love. In the the openness of bamboo, there is also strength.

2. Be Flexible in Storms

Bamboo is often the only thing left in tact even after the highest winds of a typhoon.
The tall stalks move with the wind, not against it. The bamboo trunk will sway
and bend with the wind, while its roots remain firmly rooted in the ground.
It bends, but does not break.
When storms come towards you in life, and they always will,
lean with the process, not against it.
“What can I learn from this problem, discomfort or difficultly?”
There is always something good which can come out of something bad
if we stay firmly rooted in the solid values which give purpose to our unique existence.



3. Be an Instrument of Healing

While the Bamboo flute is known to make some of the most lovely music, it is rarely recognized for its medicinal properties in healing the ills of the body or mind. Bamboo as a medicine “is especially used for the disorder of hot phlegm that coatsor obstructs the “orifices of the heart,” affecting the brain functions.Thus, it is used for epilepsy, fainting and loss of consciousness in feverish diseases,and a variety of mental disorders.”
Unsuspecting, Bamboo is a source for successful solutions to a wide variety of problems and needs.
There is no part of the Bamboo which is wasted, it is all good.

“The bamboo in its simplicity expresses its usefulness. Man should do the same.”
Aikido master Kensho Furuya

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
However just imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and
videos, this blog could certainly be one of the best in its field.
Amazing blog!
