I have always been a big fan of Taoism and Tao te Ching. It’s one way of living, I am trying to ascribe to. Having learnt some psychology, I’ve been self-studying, Jungian psychology. Thus the thought, to write a poem on one of the most basic and important principles of Taoism and Jungian psychology. Life, Flow, Water is that poem.
One of the principles of, Jungian Psychology, Taoism, Tao te Ching and I ching.
“The river is everywhere.” - Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
Your life is like water. Evolution is change. Life is adaption of these changes. Water flows around, under, over, outside and inside it’s obstructors. It takes time, but eventually all water finds it’s way into the ocean. Similarly with Life, it always finds a way. Way to wherever it is, it wants to go. Maybe an ocean exists, where all life is meant to go. That aside, we, the bearers of life. Often fight against our natural flow. Our flow or path or way, is whatever it is that doesn’t make us fuss over or makes us put barriers or makes us create excuses for. It’s the most natural course to take, and more often than not you feel it, inside your gut, inside of yourself. The more you fight, the more lost you are.
