New Thought Tao 36 - explores the Way of Correlation, the Law of Circulation, how flexibility triumphs over rigidity
Tao # 36 / Correlation
We first exhale
in order to inhale
flora condenses to a seed
before expanding to a tree
big trees fall
with a mighty crash
but first one must be tall
in order to fall
the law of circulation
so that you can receive
doubt in order to believe
flexibility triumphs over rigidity
soft prevails over hard
laughter and tears appear the same
gentle touch is the strongest caress
the strongest fish swim deep
just as the strongest states keep
their strength unseen
