Today: Be like water – from the I Ching

yinyang02paperThrough consistency,  flexibility and thoroughness you can go through any obstacle.  Be like water.  Take any shape, flow without resistance.  So doing, everyone will be inspired to flow with you.

 

The text reads:
“It flows on and on, and merely fills up all the places through which it flows; it does not shrink from any dangerous spot nor from any plunge, and nothing can make it lose its own essential nature. It remains true to itself under all conditions. Thus likewise, if one is sincere when confronted with difficulties, the heart can penetrate the meaning of the situation. And once we have gained inner mastery of a problem, it will come about naturally that the action we take will succeed. In danger all that counts is really carrying out all that has to be done- -thoroughness – and going forward, in order not to perish through tarrying in the danger.
