“This whirlpool is like the mighty river of life.” Kunchen said.
Sheridan watched as Kunchen dipped his right hand into a shallow pool of ice-crusted water, scooping up the pristine liquid in his cupped fingers. He submitted the handful of water to Sheridan. With the gentle tilt of his right hand he poured it out, watching it trickle into his left hand.
With unerring kindness in his eyes, Kunchen became the teacher and Sheridan the pupil: “Observe the water. It is soft, easily bending and transforming to its circumstance.”
He poured the water from his left hand. It fell into the writhing water and disappeared in an instant.
“But when it joins with the force of the whirlpool it becomes powerful and unstoppable.”
You must be flexible like the water, feeling the flow of life, tapping into its current.
