顺 is a Logical Aggregate, formed from two pictograms: on the left is 川 (literally means a river; an endless flowing stream); on the right is 页 (originally means head; head and face.  页 was created as a pictogram and looks from the top down like a very big head held up by tow legs). The two semantic indicators combine to give 顺 a meaning of along or be in the same direction as.

本义original meaning:
沿着同一方向 along; be in the same direction as

Lily explains 顺 like this:
To understand how 顺 is composed like this, you can imagine when you are taking a shower, the water just flows smoothly along your body in the same direction from top to toe. As the saying goes, man endeavors to rise and water flows downwards. (人 往 高 处 走, 水 往 低 处 流。Rén wǎng gāo chù zǒu, shuǐ wǎng dī chù liú.)

... a quick scan of David's wikipedia entry. I don't see obvious inauicracces, but there are a couple of omissions (mentions grandfather, but not father: a journalist I believe? also has yet to include Existence in bib.)
