panta rei, all things flow.

like water between the rocks. i wish i understood more about taoism.

one thing that i think i get is the idea that you must try to discover your nature, and once you have, listen to it. scott was telling me once of his theory, that the world is on the edge of emerging from its adolescence. this means discovering that there is no "right way", only your way, and you must be satisfied with that. it is more than a confidence thing, it has to do with being able to move forward.

in elementary school i took yoga during winter afternoons to make my body flexible. when i traveled i settled quickly and explored, adapting to the suroundings, spreading my stuff around my room to make it home. fluid movement, fluid mind. people have told me that i'm adaptable, and i think it's a good thing.
