“Water is fluid, soft and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome
whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.”

“Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force.” ~ Lao Tzu
“Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself?
The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment;
not seeking, not expecting, is present, and can welcome all things.”
– Lao Tzu –
The Tao is always at ease.
It overcomes without competing,
answers without speaking a word,
arrives without being summoned,
accomplishes without a plan.”
