Tao is called “the Watercourse Way.” Lao-Tzu suggests that we would do well to align ourselves with our own “water-nature.” In this chapter he gives some hints that may help us discover the joy that is always within us, though often hidden from our awareness. Simplicity, present-moment living, clarity of thought and speech, pleasure in our daily work – all of these things are cues that reveal when we are “in the flow” instead of in our conditioned cultural mind.
