Is it not astounding that the very water that carries a flood charged with aggressiveness and disruptiveness removing people’s homes and taking lives, can also be still as a space for healing and for humans to drink from.

There is also something to be said about the profound ways in which water presents the idea of harmony and unity. Water is never separated even as it meanders and branches between mountains, the intention is always to find a larger community.

It is also delightful to note how water travels for miles only to fulfill the needs of others, to give to the ones who are thirsty.

Water’s willingness to contribute and dissolve into the totality of things is intrinsically inspiring. Perhaps water knows something we do not know about the cyclical nature of existence, the beginning is also the end.
