Love as Water
Imagining love as water is a powerful analogy. (Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water.) Individual cells contain water and their walls are permeable, allowing the entrance and exit of water which is constantly moving around the body. The water brings nutrients and carries away waste. It flows throughout our body, revitalizing it, especially in the form of blood. It is the energy catalyst which energizes our whole body. When you swim, imagine that you are bathed in and permeated by the energy of love. What a great experience!
Love, like water, refreshes us, flowing freely unless blocked by fear, which is the greatest enemy of love. The fears of rejection, of failure, even of success can create impenetrable walls around the psyche. It is only from within that these walls can be destroyed allowing the energy of love to connect us to the Oneness, the Source of love.
A symbolic act of letting go of fear would be to visit a beach or lakeside and focus on a particular fear. Pick up a stone and imagine you are enclosing your fear inside it. Saying ”Goodbye!” to that fear, throw the stone over the water as hard as you can. See it sink into the waters of love. Throw as many stones as you wish until you feel a sense of relief. Visualize that stone permanently anchored to the bottom of the lake or ocean. If you are again confronted by that fear, see it laying as a stone on the bottom of the lake or ocean, helplessly being buried by silt. Rest in the stillness of the waters of love.
Applying love to every situation raises the frequency of energy, which flows in waves throughout the universe. Our behavior and our thoughts have powerful repercussions far beyond our knowledge. Simple kindnesses are love in action. While they may seem insignificant to us, these kind acts actually impact the lives of others. The activity of kindness involves an energy connection between us and the recipient. We are all permeated by this sea of energy, which is invisible, but no less real.
