Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.  Loa Tzu

In the world there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet
for attacking that which is hard and strong nothing can surpass it.
Lao Tzu

The sage does not hoard. The more he helps others, the more he benefits himself, The more he gives to others, the more he gets himself. The Way of Heaven does one good but never does one harm. The Way of the sage is to act but not to compete.

This is a great rumination.    What is the appropriate thing to do when squeezed between two distinctly  competing value systems?

Choose the tall glass of water is my advice and then take a swim in your new life, free of over hoarding or too much want.

Life is over in a short blink in a frog’s eye.   BTW:  Do frogs even blink?

Google it and let us know.       Why didn’t the author Google it?  Let that be your Zen Koan of the day.

The end of profundity is NOW.
