Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water can wear away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.

This moment is alive… Are you present? Pause, take a couple of slow, deep breaths, wiggle your toes, blink your eyes, and look out again at your surroundings with fresh awareness. Let’s share this moment and remember that we are connected. Sending you love… <3
