Water teaches the wisdom of Tao:
It takes no pride in sustaining life.
Live near the flow.
Let the mysteries of life wash over you.
Give part of yourself to everyone,
And remember every part is whole.
Allow natural order to lead the way
And do what must be done.
Do not fight the current,
And your head will remain above water.*
~ Lao Tzu
The wisdom of this passage from the Tao Te Ching touched me today. Water is a powerful metaphor for living life in harmony.
