Water is like the highest good
   because it flows to the lowest places.
While people strive to move upward,
   water goes freely downward,
And on its effortless course
   nourishes everything in its path.
Such is the way of the Tao.

   Live close to the land.
   Think deeply.
   Be gentle and caring.
   With others,
		be honest and just.
   In business,
		be efficient.
Attend to details.
In all situations,
		timing is crucial.

When there is no struggle,
   the natural order is not disturbed.

     from the Tao Te Ching, trans. Ray Grigg
