FLOW LIKE WATER

“Those who lives the Tao ( “sacred intuition” ) acts in their life and dealings as water acts in nature. Water does not resist, yet it conquers all; it is tasteless — suggesting the invisibility of the Tao — yet life-giving. It moves through all that lives and in movement remains clear and pure. It is supple, flexible, and humble; it does not compete” ~Taoism

Water covers 75 percent of the earth’s surface and is also 75 percent of our body weight… a major role of water helps us define our true nature…interestingly, water flows in ways consistent with our intuitive compass and rather free from rational directions.

Water resist containment and seeks ways to move on a journey of its own inclination…our social conditioning tries to meet definite expectations and goals….however our intuitive compass wants to be free to follow its own unique course.

A river flows, not in a fixed route, rather it follows the contour of the land and, if the landscape changes, the river changes course…change is usually dreaded by rational thinking which wants fixed goals…while our intuitive compass is flexibly open to new directions.

The river follows the easiest route, the path of least resistance and its movement is effortless…rational thoughts follows set goals requiring much effort and resistance….but our intuitive compass is relatively free from motivations and its movements are largely effortless and free from resistance.

At times the river will disappear, deep underground but will resurface eventually…our obsessed rational thoughts are unable to forget self consciousness… while our intuitive compass is able to lose itself in enjoyable activities.
