The Philosophy of Water

Watching Raymond Tang’s speech The Philosophy of Water gave me a sense of peace. The talk, based on the Tao Te Ching, explains how to find fulfillment by being water.

Water possesses three distinct qualities:

  1. Humility: Water contributes to life around it.
  2. Harmony: Water solves problems without force or conflict.
  3. Openness: Water is open to change.

By adapting these three traits, I have found more fulfillment, peace, and meaning in my actions. It has been instrumental in dealing with all of the chaos that is 2020.
