COMPLETE TEXT: THE WATER ELEMENT ©2020"The Water Element"
The spirit of The Way is like water –
It cannot be contained in words;
flowing into worlds beyond reason
where intuition becomes the master.
Water is one – Strategy is one.
Is there one kind of water for a lake,
and another kind for a river?
What is the distinction
between the water in your well
and the water in your cup?
There is not one strategy for single combat,
and another strategy for war.
Strategy, like water, is one substance
differentiated only by circumstance.
The substance of strategy is winning.
To mistake The Way even a little,
is to fall into the abyss of confusion.
You cannot memorize or imitate The Way,
it must flow naturally
from heart, mind, and spirit…
Into spontaneous action.
