A wonderful waterfall is a precious gift of nature. But how do we know it’s special value?
Water is the source of life, the source of fertility and satisfaction. Who did ever smile thirsty or burnt in the beach without ability to refresh? (if swimming there is forbidden).
Yes, yes, we all want to refresh. But do we evaluate what we already have?
Water is the most abundant compound on Earth, covering over 70% of the planet. Water has the power of constant change; when cold, it crystalizes and freezes, when hot, it steams, when touched, it ripples. It makes up between 65% and 78% of our body (depending on age), comprising over 70% of our brain, heart, skin, muscles, kidneys, lungs, and liver. Even 31% of our dry bones are water. The more water we lose, the more we deteriorate and when we are only 50% water, we die. We are water in human form.
This can memorize and transport various information. Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto demonstrated this with his water crystal project. In this study, Emoto played music, displayed words, and prayed to water while it was freezing, and when the water was frozen it created crystal shapes distinct to each affect. When the words and music were positive and loving, intricate crystal shapes appeared, and on the contrary, when sounds and words were negative and harsh, chaotic shapes formed.
This leads to the the question: What if we can transform our thoughts and words for a positive change while we are in water? Could we renew our body and mind to default to the balance and peace it feels when in water?
Naturally, being in water can serve as a reminder of our natural human state: flowing, changing, self- flow, aware, and resilient. It is all-pervading and in constant flux. In many cultures water is seen as holy and paramount to spiritual enlightenment. In Sanskrit “Narayan” is the name of God in his infinite all-pervading form and translated as “the one who moves in the infinite waters and is also the water itself.”
For me, personally, it is very healing to open this wonderful waterfall track, before sleep, or while meditating. I start it playing, sit or lay down in bed comfortably, in a cosy light. I see my self under the Wonderful waterfall with marvellous stream on me. I see how all my worried mind is washed and refreshed. Every inch of me, every cell, renews and rejoices under that perfect balancing stream – Gift from above. It keeps playing, and I get less and less distracted, being showered by this grace. I see it as God’s given grace for me right now. I click on the video full screen and enjoy the light waves and soothing blue and green colours of nature. I sometimes leave it on for a night (it’s a 10 hours stream!) and am comforted with peace and cosy refreshment till the new day dawns.. 🙂
The new day dawns, but before… Let it flow, let it flow – joyfully, preciously, let it flow… 🙂
