“What is Hope?” By Sethu Ngqiva
What is hope? If you want to know about hope ask the trees.
As seasons change, trees are guided to learn acceptance and non-resistance. A green leaf doesn’t resist turning red when autumn approaches.
Trees don’t resist leaves falling when winter arrives. They stand deeply rooted in the ground, with their vulnerability out in the open and branches spread wide, surrendering to the Universe.
If you want to know about hope, look at the sky.
No matter what storms are passing, know it is always transient because beyond the clouds, the sky is always blue and the sun is always shining.
In fact, hope is best gained after defeat and failure, because then inner strength and toughness is gained, now that is Hope.
