Flexibility (mental elements No. 38 and 39, Fl1-Fl2)
Flexibility is the phenomenon that crushes the rigidity that arises from superstition and conceit. It makes the mind supple, like gold becomes after impurities are removed. It does not allow the mind to be influenced by the forces of confrontation or resistance. It is like the state of mind-body that’s present after a wholesome workout or after a deep insight. Flexibility simply indicates a state of mind free of stiffness, inflexibility, strictness, hardness, confrontation, resistance, and so on. It is an essential wholesome element, which is always present in some degree in all wholesome states of consciousness.
