The highest motive is to be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle. Water can flow or it can crash. Water is essential to all life, sustaining life with no conscious striving, providing nourshment, flowing humbly to the lowest level. Nothing in the world is weaker or more yielding than water, yet nothing is its equal in wearing away the hard and strong. Be like water!
