We Drink Prompts-Weakness 2

Shatsu masters teach:
live by your weaknesses
not by your strength!

those who easily digest
over-do
this strength
to the detriment
of
their hearts…

to drink wine with impunity
just because you can
at last
becomes a weakness
and your
liver
will rebel…

I never thought about it
until
I did these lessons
but soon I realized
that this is what I usually do…

the wisdom
of saving strength
living according our weaknesses
assures
a healthful life.

A paradox.
