Water wisdom


“When flowing water … meets with obstacles on its path, a blockage in its journey, it pauses. It increases in volume and strength, filling up in front of the obstacle and eventually spilling past it….


“Do not turn and run, for there is nowhere worthwhile for you to go. Do not attempt to push ahead into the danger … emulate the example of the water: Pause and build up your strength until the obstacle no longer represents a blockage.”



— from the ‘I Ching,’presented in
‘To Build the Life You Want, Create the
Work You Love: The Spiritual Dimension
of Entrepreneuring’ by Marsha Sinetar
