The ancients saw our emotions in the “moods” of water: surging, rising and falling, turbulent, stormy, calm, sometimes laughing along a mountain stream or raining in tearful torrents, our emotions as part of our inner hydraulic cycle. Like water, emotions tale the form of their container. Our emotions are shaped by our worldview, family traditions, opinions- in essence by our thoughts. These thoughts form the container that shapes our emotions. If your emotions are in a particular habitual pattern, find the thoughts and beliefs that have created the rigid pattern. Work to develop new thought patterns, and it won’t be long to see the emotions take different forms."

She has but doesn’t possess,
acts but doesn’t expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever."
