"... stillness can really accompany a lot of the movement-type practices. One of my favorite passages from one of my Chinese Ch'an teachers reminds us of this principle: "Be soft in your practice. Think of the method as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall. Follow the stream. Have faith in its course ... It will take you there." This idea of being soft in your practice.., this relates to the capacity to be soft in the subtle body. " ~Tias Little

nature, stream, water, green, gold,/This is a spot that I feel that I could sit & leave all worries behind. I'd love to hear the trickling of the clean water. I'd probably have my feet soaking in such crystal clear water. Too beautiful to describe!!
