The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

The highest good is like water

 

The highest good is like water.
Water give life to the ten thousand things
and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.

In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In daily life, be competent.
In action, be aware of the time and the season.
No fight: No blame.Tao Te Ching, Verse 8Tao & Zen
