Now, I’m not talking about having a bath here. As relaxing and rejuvenating as a soak in the bath water can be at the end of the day, there is more to water than that. It gives life, without it the human form would perish. It can make a tasty beverage or two, and so on. This being Realiser I want to talk about the spiritual power of water and the effect on your mind.
Put aside for a second any religious uses water may have had, Baptisms and that kind of thing. Focus on the possibility that water can heal you if you let it. Relaxing and being submerged in water can take you to a peaceful place. The small hiccup being that breathing is also an advantage on your mind expanding journey! So this peace doesn’t last that long.
Let spiritual water wash over you.
Have you ever been under the water and been able to hear your own heart beat? Blocking the sounds of the world out lets you hear the things that you rarely do, much like meditation does. Blocking out life’s nonsense can take you to a place of peace. By the way I’m not recommending you hold your breath for as long as you can in the pool, breath – very important.
“Use water like a quiet room all to yourself, let your mind wander in the silence.”
What you can do however is remember that quieting the mind, letting yourself hear the silence, the nothingness, is where the mind wanders and expands from it’s shackles. Use water as you would a quiet room all to yourself. Your eyes can be closed, there will be no bangs and crashes from the world interfering. Your body will be held by the water and your ears are almost useless here. All the aches and pains will be subdued. All of this allows you to let your mind be quiet. This is the spiritual power of water.
In an unmeasurable ocean.
I would hazard a guess that more of you have done this than you realise (above). Maybe on holiday you have let yourself float in the sea on your back, eyes closed, relaxed, peaceful. This is a form of meditation, but you’re just missing some practice and patience. Busy lives, money, work, phones, friends and family, all distractions from your meditation – in the water however you can be alone for a while. Don’t miss this chance to be silent, look up, let your mind wander, realise what you have been missing.
“I would say that when I am in water, I am more at peace than lying on my bed”
“Use water as you would your free time – make the most of it”
Realiser was born from me wanting to be in a realised state, a state of awaken, to be able to see the obvious having missed it for sooo many years. I wanted to create something to serve as an example of how it could be, maybe, if only we might spent the time meditating that we spent hating, spend the time being kind to others for no reason. You get the idea. I will travel around doing what I can and would love for you to join me.
