When one path is closed, another is opened.
There is a time for pushing through obstruction, and there is a time for flowing through the path of least resistance.
The way is neither rigid nor pliable, it is accepting the oscillation, and knowing when to embody which characteristic.
“The master allows things to happen, she shapes things as they come. She steps out of the way and let’s the Tao speak for itself”
This is the way.
