Excerpt

“Nothing in the world is softer and more yielding than water,

yet nothing can surpass it in attacking the firm and strong;

nothing does it more easily.

(Page 183)

 

Hermit Poet’s Comments: Float along through life like riding a cloud. Try to avoid obstacles as best you can and do not allow angry people to get you down.  Move on and keep flowing in a positive way. Like bad weather, negative vibrations will also pass, and then you can capitalize on the clear sunny sky.
