Pooh knows what he’s talking about. I guess you could say Benjamin Hoff knows what he’s talking about, but I prefer to hear a tiny little Pooh voice saying this to Piglet or Eeyore or, more likely, Christopher Robin.
“To know the Way,
We go the way,
We do the way.
The way we do,
The things we do,
It’s all there in front of you.
But if you try too hard to see it,
You’ll only become Confused.
I am me and you are you.
As you can see;
But when you do
The things that you can do.
You will find the Way.
And the Way will follow you.”
~ Benjamin Hoff

Water can mean going with the flow or being wishy washy if you are looking at it from the Chinese Five Element Theory point of view. I would say that this water is going with the flow and in the past it has probably dragged some of the rocks (representing earth, another element) along with it. I am a water person when you analyze me using the Chinese method. I have always thought of myself that way even before I knew anything about the Chinese Five Elements. The other elements are fire, earth, metal and wood
On Christmas day many people in the world celebrate the birth of a child. The birth of every child is a miracle and welcomed with unconditional love. No matter what your faith it is a good time to remember the feeling of unconditional love that we have felt for a newborn child and extend it to all. We were all children. We are all miracles.
