Node After Node
A Quote from Otagaki Rengetsu (Lotus Moon), one of my favorite poets
Whether it is a new skill, an ongoing art practice, working with the soul, or training heart-mind, all we can do, as Lady Rengetsu reminds us, is grow auspiciously like “this noble gentleman” called bamboo and add one node after another. There is no rush. There is no timeline. Some projects may even take more than one lifetime.
