The way of life has been described as a stream. One can choose to float like a leaf that fallen from a tree and now finds itself riding the current. It glides along and the way is smooth. The man who turns and tries to fight his way upstream, will soon exhaust himself. Those that try to fight the currents of Tao will undoubtedly fail for that which is not in alignment with Tao will be if you permit me use such a harsh word, destroyed. If we are to be one with the universe, then it is up to each of us to find our true path, and then follow it.
