Here are a few long exposure photos that I took of water features and rivers from my recent visit to Bali, Indonesia. What better text to accompany them than wise words from Lao-tzu, author of the Tao te Ching.
Verse 78 Tao te Ching (by Lao-tzu)
Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water. Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible, nothing can surpass it.
The soft overcomes the hard; the gentle overcomes the rigid. Everyone knows that is true, but few can put it into practice.
Therefore the Master remains serene in the midst of sorrow. Evil cannot enter his heart. Because he has given up helping, he is people’s greatest help.
True words seem paradoxical.
