Tao-Verse 8

The supreme good is like water,
which nourishes all of creation
without trying to compete with it.
It gathers in the low places unpopular with men.
Thus it is like the Tao.
Live in accordance with the nature of things.
In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In dealing with others, be fair and generous.
In governing, do not try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.
When you are content to be simply yourself,
and don’t compare or compete,
everybody will respect you.
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.

Dear Friends and Family,


Freedom comes when we allow ourselves to align with the truth of our being so that we might be who we have come to this plane to be.

I commit to allowing myself to live in the flow of life and trusting that my higher self knows when to be balanced, soft, gentle, and non-resistant.

I also commit to trusting when my nature needs to change direction, be assertive and unrelenting. I realize that my nature, just like water, is to be the both/and.

I am strong, powerful, soft, gentle, and balanced. I, too, am a force of nature, and so are each of you.
