Water That Embraces and Transforms
“The supreme good is like water, which nourishes all things without trying to. It is content with the low places that people disdain. Thus, it is like the ‘Tao’.
In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.
When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.”
- Lao Tzu, Dao De Jing
The best people do not contend with others. Thus, they do not make mistakes often and they do not blame others. Water has no form but has all forms. We should learn from water to be humble, tolerant, consistent, and non-controversial.
To convey such virtues to our children is to convey kindness all the time. We allow teachers to take care of children quietly, to see the kindness and beauty of each child, and to build a positive student-teacher relationship. Children who live and learn in such an environment will naturally be able to create kind and beautiful works of art.
