Be Like Water

Once Socrates was traveling with his companions. They stopped at a place near a river. Socrates asked one of his companion to fetch water from the river. That friend of Socrates went to the river and saw some women washing clothes at the bank of the river.

He decided to go further to fetch some clean water. But by moving almost half a kilometer he saw some cows passing the river.

He noticed that by moving the cows from river the sand at the bottom came on surface and made water unclean. He came back and told others the hole story of water being uncleaned by women and cows. Socrates smiled and told his companion to take rest under the tree.

They took rest under the tree for almost 2 hours. Then Socrates ask his same companion to fetch water from river. His friend was surprised to hear that again as he already told him about the water being mixed with dirt. But he respect Socrates so much that he can't deny his orders. He went to river and shocked to see water. The water was so pure and cleaned.

He fetched some water and went back to the group. He told them about water being cleaned magically. Socrates smiled again. Socrates said that there was no magic. It's the peculiarity of water. Water takes time but come up clean. It takes some time to settle down the impurities at the bottom. And filtered water comes up at the surface.

Socrates advised his companions to

Be Like Water

Whenever some thoughts make your mind impure then just take time, stay calm and be at the your favorite place. After sometime your mind will throw all impurities at the bottom and will decide better for you. Never take decisions in anger and hurry. The best decision will be the one which you take in relaxation.

Whenever misunderstanding happen in any relationship then instead of shouting and being angry just give time to the relation... The impurities and misunderstanding will fade out automatically.

Socrates advised them to rise argument not voice while arguing with someone. He said that never shout while talking with anyone. He asked his companion a question: "Why people shout while arguing?"

When no one answered the question then he answered that: when two persons get angry with each other the distance between their hearts increases. Although they are close physically but their hearts are so distant. Due to distancing between hearts they feel that they are so distant to each other. That's why to cover the distance they shout. The more the distance between hearts the higher will the amplitude of the voice.

And if they give time and respect to each other then the impurities in the heart will surely settle down at the bottom and pure love will come out at the surface.

Final Thoughts

I am totally agreed with Socrates. We have to give time to relation at least. The impurities will surely fade out and pure love will immerge. Another point we can conclude from this is being like water means solving our problems ourselves. No will come and solve your problems. Its you who can solve your problems.

That's really wise analogy. We should be more in control of our emotions and not let it get the best of us. A lot of situations have escalated to a worst situation because of being hot headed. Choose peace above all else.

Distance hearts? Never knew this before but this is true that when we are in bad mood or angry with each then we should be claim as like the river water clean issue. But this is not easy as like socrates said. In fact, only wise people have this ability.

This is very helpful. When were not on our best emotion we should remind ourselves to stay calm and wait for your thoughts to settle. Because the more you talk, the more chaos there will be.

Indeed shouting is no good when you are arguing with someone it will make the problem big and no one will going to listen to each other. I agree with what you stated here that we should not make a decision when we are angry.

You have a good point there, friend. Talking while mad is not good as it can result in us saying bad things that we will regret later on. We must have a clear mind like clear water before speaking. :)
