“In silence, we have an opportunity to reflect, listen, and gain new insights about ourselves.
In silence, we can think, feel, and most important of all, breathe.
When you seek guidance, understanding, clarity, or peace of mind,
the first step is to master the art of silence
and to rethink the value of solitude.”
– Iyanla Vanzant

Water teaches the wisdom of Tao:
It takes no pride in sustaining life.
Live near the flow.
Let the mysteries of life wash over you.
Give part of yourself to everyone,
And remember every part is whole.
Allow natural order to lead the way
And do what must be done.
Do not fight the current,
And your head will remain above water.*
~ Lao Tzu
Let us all drink more of it, and embrace water’s wisdom.
