Emulate the qualities of water.

Chapter 08

The supreme good is like water,
Which nourishes all things without trying to.
It is content with the low places that people disdain,
Thus it is like the Tao.
In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.
When you are content to be simply yourself,
And don't compare or compete,
Everybody will respect you.

What's Master DudeWay Say?

Bruce Lee famously said, "Be like water, my friend." He understood the power of being adaptable and flowing with life's challenges, just as the Tao teaches. By embodying the qualities of water, we can navigate life with grace and ease.

Dudeism Abides

Like water, be flexible, adaptable, and gentle in all aspects of life. By embracing these qualities, we can live in harmony with the Tao.

Water's gentle flow,
Nourishing, adaptable,
Embrace Tao's wisdom.
