COMPLETE TEXT: THE NATURE OF WATER ©2020"The Nature of Water"
To understand the nature of water
is to understand the nature of existence –
Flowing from the highest peaks
of the elevated,
to the lowest burrows
rejected by all –
It is ubiquitous.
Seeking its own level
It nourishes the entire world
without consequence or discrimination.
Naturally flowing around everything,
It directly confronts nothing.
Filling the void
and eroding rough edges –
Tireless and relentless,
It washes away eternity.
Take time to understand
the nature of growing things.
Experience the compassion and insight
gained from deep meditation.
Practice and confirm the virtues
of honesty and kindness in dealing with others.
Demonstrate competence in your daily life,
and discernment in your daily actions.
Recognize the transient nature of opportunity
in a dynamic ever-changing possibility.
Entering into conflict encourages confrontation.
Avoiding the argument eliminates the need
for violent actions.
Therefore, I reinforce the wisdom of past masters
for attaining serenity and tranquility:
No fight; No blame.
