Tao Te Ching Day 85: Wet Ass Water the Sequel

That the weak overcomes the strong

And the soft overcomes the hard

Everybody in the world knows

But cannot put into practice

TTC 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.

At the beach 😎

I believe that you can not take what is freely given.

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.
