When water is still, the reflection found is true to the objects being reflected. When the water is angry, or being tossed about, the reflection is distorted and not true to what is being reflected. We are like that, when we are still, not embracing drama or worry, what is being reflected is true, we see a clear picture of what is going on around us, which often allows us to see both sides of a situation and also gives us time to see things as they truly are. Time to think of the best way to handle the situation. Calmly. But, with busy, hectic lives, the water around us is rippling, then rushing or with great waves. Chaos often steals our chance to see the water around us still and reflective.
