Be like Water

I know that there are several proverbs and sayings from the Far East that concern themselves with water. I’m certain that this paraphrase has been influenced by many of them.

“Be like water – even with heavy rain though the surface is rippled and disturbed, the deep part stays untouched and still. As soon as the rain ceases, the ripples dissipate and the surface is again flat and still.”

The point to this quote is that when the circumstances of life cause ripples, or in many cases waves, on the surface of our lives, it is the stillness of our center that gives us the ability to quickly come back to a peace and “ripple free” life. Focus more time, effort and energy on the place within yourself. When that inner place is tended to, any circumstance will distill away to stillness.
