A tree in a storm
Like a tree standing tall in a wind storm, once the storm is over only the strongest, newest leaves remain. All of the old dead leaves have flown away revealing a new changed tree ready for the next gust of wind. Such as in life when you are caught in the middle of the storm, when someone has done you wrong, when you feel like things aren't going your way, instead of feeling like you need to take action to change things, be still. Hold your ground and let whatever you were holding onto that doesn't serve you anymore fly away. Once the turmoil has passed what is left is your true essence, true presence and consciousness, a clarity and light that can now shine without pretense. In and through this storm is when the most rapid of change happens. So when you see the storm approaching or your caught in the middle of it, hold your ground and just remain because change is coming.
