An effort should be smooth and slow, no twitching. An abrupt push forward triggers a strong push backwards. The system is very inert and resists changing itself, so all efforts should be long and smooth.
You should not greatly admire the good, you should not worry much about the bad. We live in a liquid world where entities constantly change their nature ... today is a good thing, bad tomorrow, good the day after again.
The war of softness and hardness is such that the stream of water wants to throw stones and break their way through the rocks in its rush to the ocean. On the other hand, the stones want to stand dead in their place.
The essence of the experience is to adjust the order so that the water flows in the right and useful channel, without trying to turn off the path of truth. Order requires useful work, and chaos is always trying to sabotage this process.
When you let go of ideals and forms, you will feel like a stream of energy that cannot be stopped. The possibility of stopping creates fear. The realization of the impossibility of stopping and the infinite variety of options, generates infinite joy and delight.
Strong desire creates impassability. A strong desire is like a great speed. Too much speed leads to the fact that the liquid becomes solid as a stone, and creates an impassability. If you slow down, you can walk through walls.
Resignation is when you need to go straight and there is a precipice in front of you. However, you do not get disheartened because you recall some guy who walked on water and cling to the hope that air is not very different from water and, resignedly, you take a step into the abyss.
Given that atoms are liquid, we are, in fact, always surrounded by liquid in different States. Ocean is liquid. Atmosphere-liquid. Solid matter is also liquid, and even vacuum and light are also liquid. And you yourself are more like a fish than a higher intelligence. Man is the Supreme intelligence, the electric essence existing in the world of water.
Life in water style: relax and do your work with pleasure.
Water always finds its way. It's difficult to stop water. Water exists in the sky and deep below the ground. Water is the base for life. Water is both liquid and solid. Water is really powerful. Water always finds cracks. It's impossible to stop or eradicate water. Water is everywhere.
It's possible to philosophize over the nature of water and compare it with chaos and life. While those powers that resist it can be compared with order and death. And really, there are ways to control water and deprive it of freedom. Freezing and ice, boiling and fire, sealed reservoirs, hydraulic systems, steam engines and electric power plants. However, does it tame water? Mechanical power of ice is so great that it can easily crash stones and metals. And heating turns water into omnipresent evaporation.
One more interesting comparison. Water in its moderately-standard state remains liquid and necessary for life. And when different forces affect life, let's call them forces of chaos and order, life definitely ends but water turns either into ice or into evaporation. Its former state freezes in icy rest and the latter one goes up to the sky.
You know, water is the product of love. Water is like molten metal, it warms the attention of the sun. Water warmed by the sun gives birth to life. Deprived of the warmth of the sun's love, the water turns to ice and life dies.
Water is the oldest entity in our world, even older than the sun. In fact, water is one of the first transitional forms of energy. The first forms of energy - time, light, hydrogen and water in this series is one of the first complex forms of energy. In fact, water is a symbol of the Trinity, where two sources of hydrogen energy feed one life.
