Water Drop #24 – “Water suffers change into as many natures as are the different places through which it passes. And as the mirror changes with the color of its subject, so it alters with the nature of the place, becoming noisome, laxative, astringent, sulfurous, salty, mournful, raging, angry . . . Sometimes it starts a conflagration, sometimes it extinguishes one; is warm and is cold, carries away or sets down, hollows out or builds up, tears or establishes, fills or empties, raises itself or burrows down, speeds or is still; is the cause at times of life or death, or increase or privation, nourishes at times and at others does the contrary; at times has a tang, at times is without savor, sometimes submerging the valleys with great floods. In time and with water, everything changes.” —Leonardo da Vinci
Water Drop #23 – “A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.” —Henry David Thoreau
Water Drop #22 – “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”—Loran Eisley (Anthropologist)
Water Drop #21 – Unfortunately, and for a long time, we have treated water as we have treated ourselves. When there is bacteria, disease, or parasite, we have brought in poison. Our bodies and our water are no longer sacred, and we are both slowly dying. Yet, there are many other ways to support the detoxification of our bodies and the detoxification of Earth’s water. None of them require poison—all require conscious attention and love. With these at the helm, change will come and ideas will flow. A deeper connection with ourselves and a relationship with the water will result.
Water Drop #20 – In his book, The Last Ghost Dance, Brook Medicine Eagle says, “Go, those of you who live near Mother Ocean, and sit beside her mighty waters. Listen with rapt attention to the voices who speak from deep within her. Come, those of you who are swimmers, come into the waters. Rest upon their swells and feel the ecstatic song that courses through your every cell. The song of life being sung, though urgent, is still the most beautiful song. It is filled with the colors of tropical fishes, the nurturing of the waves kissing the shore, the peacefulness of anemones waving, the swiftness of fishes darting, the pulse of your own heart’s blood, and the richness of the myriad of life of the waters.” Being with the water will fill you with the song of life . . . it is time to sing. . . and to dance with the water.
