Adapt

Look to be in harmony with all that is around you. Do not expect your surroundings to change for you, so change to be one with your surroundings whenever possible. If this is not possible, change your surroundings. Walk away quietly. Let wisdom guide you. With the power of the Dao within you, you will always make the right choice.  Be like water. Suppose there is a river. It is warm outside. The water becomes warm. It does not fight to be cold. It does not struggle. It accepts the warmth and acclimates itself to it. Conversely, when the weather turns cold, so does the water. Once again the water changes. There is no argument. There is no suffering. The water simply changes and goes with the change in weather. The water does not seek to fight what it cannot defeat.
