The gift of water.
The way everything, animate and inanimate, has water.
How not only is it in our rivers and oceans, under our feet in aquifers and the roots of our plants it is in our cells and our air,
I believe that water is responsive to our attention. I know some people think Masaru Emoto's work is pseudo-science and maybe it is, but something about it rings true to me. The sense that the energy projected to something has an effect is something i watch happen in myself and the people i work with. One person may be having a day where they are off balance or unwell, or happy and that seeps into the energy of the room. I am sure water as a living element is no different, we are, after all largely water ourselves.
So if all water is responsive and considering that since the beginning of time there has been no new water made, (not one drop that was not here before in another form), then perhaps by treating the water we encounter lovingly we can make a difference.
And if we can make a difference using our energy in a loving and positive way, is that enough to balance out the negative way that others approach water?
What if in fact it is all a balance and our work as souls who believe in the power of energy is to turn up to correct the balance away from water as a vehicle for waste (think oil sands, think polluted rivers and oceans, think water used to cool reactors at Fukushima all becoming irretrievably damaged) and towards honouring water as the lifeblood of our land. A member of the family of living beings on earth.
How would it be if we could begin, just with the water we come in contact with to send respect, gratitude and love for its presence and support. What if we could trust that stayed with the water, moved with it through our bodies, into the waterways, into the atmosphere, down into the earth in that cycle that supports all life.
What if that water filled with love and gratitude nourished the next being it touched with love and gratitude?
What if it was able to provide a sense of heart-filling goodness beyond the biological function?
What if that shift was enough to start that being to exude love and gratitude?
What if that by each action of loving and respect for water we began to change the weight of what is out there in the world?
What if loving water was a panacea to the sorrow that is so evident everywhere?
Would it hurt to try?
