Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself.
The water of the valley stream never shouts at the tainted world: “Purify yourself!”
But naturally, as it is, shows how it is done.
You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to sail.
Look at the stream, there are rocks in its way. Does it slam into them out of frustration? It simply flows over and around them and moves on! Be like the water and you will know what harmony is.
Obey the nature of things, and you are in concord with the Way; Calm and easy and free from annoyance.
