Kong Zi(Confucius) was observing the view from the Lu Liang Mountains where there was a waterfall three hundred feet high. The foam and froth created by the water as it hit bottom extended for thirteen miles. Neither turtles, alligators, fish nor any other water creatures were able to swim in those rapids. He saw a man swimming in the current. Kong Zi went up to him and asked:“ I thought you must have been some sort of ghost, but now I can see you’re a man. Please excuse me for asking, but do you have a special way to flit through water like that?” No, I don’t have a special way. I started with what was inborn in me, grew up following my own nature, and accomplished what I have because of my fate.
