Power of Images
'Mind like water' is a powerful image -- I can see it as a starting place for action -- first you must fully accept and embrace your current state without over or underreacting. Water does that.
However, to move towards a desired next state, seems like you need something with a harder edge than water, something that provides some resistance or gives you leverage. I think of something hard with sharp boundaries, maybe a carpenter's square, so that you can see intersections, parallels, and divergences between your current course of action and your desired state.
So, assuming that 'mind like water' is an ideal start (understanding the current state), I have two questions:
How does 'mind like water' inspire you to CHANGE or ACT to modify the current state?
If 'mind like water' is just a prerequiste to change, is there a 'next image' that inspires (gives energy to) the 'next action'?
My wondering for the morning.
