That the weak overcomes the strong
And the soft overcomes the hard
Everybody in the world knows
But cannot put into practiceTTC 78 (Lin)
Why can this not be put into practice, because to try and practice is an assertive act? Water does not assert itself. It lets itself be moved. It trusts the universe.
Jesus said if some one sues you for your shirt, give him also your jacket.
This is allowing like water. When someone takes water more water comes to replace what is taken.
I believe that you can not take what is freely given.
