In Taoism, it teaches that “the spirit of the valley never dies”. The valley is where water is born, and where it starts to flow as a river. That is the place where fresh water wells up, and the water at the valley is full of life energy.
The rich topographical variety produces numerous valleys in Japan. Tao says, the valleys will never dry out, and are eternal.
I have produced my work in the water which comes from the valleys. I am 70 years old now, and full of energy. I am positive that it is because I have absorbed the energies at the valleys for lat 35 years.
You may need to release tension from being in the city, sort out tangled emotions, look for a leading light, or get back your tenderness. Those can be possible simply by walking by the river, drinking tea by the river while you listen to the sound of the water, or playing with water which will balance your feeling inside of your mind.
The valley is a place where all the life force is born. Therefore, it will never die. Moreover, it promises for the eternal life.
Please go out to look for the water from the valley.
