The Tao..8th Verse

this morn i reflect, contemplate the ongoings on church   there is a little turmoil at the moment but we will evolve and grow from it   after my thoughts i picked up The Tao and read the next verse for the day   it spoke truly what i needed today    here it is:

 

                           The supreme good is like water,

                   which nourishes all things without trying to.

                     It flows to low places loathed by all men,

                            Therefore, it is like the Tao.

 

                     Live in accordance with the nature of things,

                            In dwelling, be close to the land.

                        In meditation, go deep in the heart,

                   In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.

                                Stand by your word.

                                Govern with equity.

                      Be timely in choosing the right moment.

 

                    One who lives in accordance with nature

                       does not go against the way of things.

              He moves in harmony with the present moment,

                 always knowing the truth of just what to do.
