The highest goodness resembles water
Water greatly benefits myriad things without contention
It stays in places that people dislike
Therefore it is similar to the Tao
Dwelling with the right location
Feeling with great depth
Giving with great kindness
Speaking with great integrity
Governing with great administration
Handling with great capability
Moving with great timing
Because it does not contend
It is therefore beyond reproach
You can support people, have empathy and compassion for them without getting caught up in their dramas. Detachment doesn’t mean you don’t care. It just means you don’t buy into their stories.
When you're connected to the flow of life you aren’t afraid to go to the places in your subconscious that scare you. Shining a light on these places makes them less intimidating and then you realise there was probably nothing to fear in the first place. You let things come in and out of your life without trying to change them. However as you change, as you ascend, you change the world around you. If you remain open and are able to adapt to whatever is happening then life becomes easier and simpler. There is no need to worry. You will have the effect that is needed and can flow through life still remaining centred and calm.
