Walking the Tao – Chapter 40

Yielding, as water yields in order to move around obstacles, is not capitulation, weakness, or defeat. Water’s purpose is that of nurturing all it touches, and no obstacle, dam, or diversion can ever frustrate that essential quality. Yielding is the strength of adapting to the given circumstances while never losing one’s purpose or true nature.
