Laozi, author of Tao Te Ching, lived around the the 6th century BC and is considered to be the “father of Taoism.” Often associated symbolically with a black and white circle that melts together to form the yin and the yang, Taoism is a philosophy and ethic that suggests we live in the moment and go with the flow. When considering the nature of one’s existence, Laozi (also Lao Tzu) saw water as a metaphor for being. His thoughts on this subject continue to resonate today, “The very softest thing of all can ride like a galloping horse through the hardest of things. Like water, like water penetrating rock, and so the invisible enters in.”
