Be powerfully soft like the water flowing down the mountainside stream. Soft to the touch . . . a provider for life in all its forms . . . flowing together with the streams that are its sisters and brothers to enrich the world. Powerful when need be . . . gently flowing at times . . . but never giving up its softness or its power . . . for the essence of water . . . just as the essence of you this day . . . is very much needed by the world it interacts with . . . softly . . . powerfully . . . flowing.
When you meet an obstacle . . . a so-called rock in your path . . . gently flow around it, over it, under it. With persistence you will softly, powerfully wear it down so that it impedes you no longer.
Be the softness and power of the mountain stream this day in all you do . . . flowing to the ocean of all possibilities.
