Nature teaches

“Water does not resist. Water flows.
Water always goes where it wants to go. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember, you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” – Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

If you can’t go through….I liked this! Neither resisting nor fighting with a problem can help us solve it. A water-like patience can wear the problem away.

The true power of water is in its flexibility, its softness. We can go through water and we also love its touch. Water nurtures. Water caresses. Water cleans. Water also heals.

Water is not hard, it’s not stubborn. It is persevering. If we try to stop it, it will first try to percolate through. If it can’t, it will change its course and move on. If it can’t, it will corrode the obstructing material. If it can’t, it will break through. Water moves silently or melodiously. It roars only when it has gathered strength to break through.

This is how nature teaches us. Let us unfold some more lessons. Nature is the path to God.
