I need to drink water to keep my body clean inside, to keep it healthy and strong, to keep it clear of toxins and stagnation. I need to have clean water flowing through me to be well.
I need it flowing through my heart, mind and soul, and from my heart, mind and soul. I need it to flow like the river, so that the pressure does not become too great and burst the container, so that it does not stagnate and become toxic.
Water is the universal solvent. It cleans away detritus and toxins and stagnation. Flowing, it has strength and force that can accomplish great movement and change. It carves and wears and shapes and moves all that it comes in contact with. It is the most fluid and mutable and yet tangible element of all.
I am mist and rain and torrent and snowfall…and I am the river and the lake…and a wave in the universal Ocean.
Water is Life.
