  • recently i have understood more and more the need of being flexible. when faced with a force or people who's hearts are like rocks it is important to be like water and flow around the rock. as in nature, so in us. when water encounters rock it goes around, flowing, creating channels, for even the rock has its utilisation and its value. we are all put on this earth with our extrinsic value; the rock upholds, the water flows, the rock allows channels to make around it and the water expands those channels to flow into the sea as it is its path. along the way, we all benefit.

    similarily, in our lives we encounter people who are hardened by experience, nature and choice. they come into our lives so that we must also realise their purpose and to work with them we must be like water. perhaps they would say... oh water, sometimes there is a need for a dam, animals and people, the land and the fields all benefit from my form, my intrinsic nature gives the form of the world where you may flow. so know, our rocks, we respect you. for when you see the rocks me, know to flow, and when i see the rock in you... i too may flow. perhaps in that way, our hearts will melt to each other and all that surrounds us.
