Be like Water



The best way to live

is to be like water

For water benefits all things

and goes against none of them

It provides for all people

and even cleanses those places

a man is loath to go

In this way it is just like Tao


Live in accordance with the nature of things:

Build your house on solid ground

Keep your mind still

When giving, be kind

When speaking, be truthful

When ruling, be just

When working, be one-pointed

When acting, remember - timing is everything


One who lives in accordance with nature

does not go against the way of things

He moves in harmony with the present moment

always knowing the truth of just what to do


Verse 8 - TAO TE CHING
