Let River Flow


The pristine river of Tao flows naturally down from greatest mountain. River needs no help in flowing or choosing course. It seeks the path of least resistance and this path may change over time naturally and without artificial intervention.

Problem exists when man tries to interfere with river and change it to his liking. On lower level, man may decide he has to take action when best course of action would be non-action. Wrong path often taken due to desire or ego.

If there is no desire, there is harmony. If there is no ego, there is no wish to act for selfish means. Let river flow. Listen to it splash against rocks. Watch how it effortlessly goes around things in its path. No need to get in the way.
