Water is the source of life. This point was brought home to me in a sweatlodge that I attended a few days ago. I do not normally drink much before going into a sweat and by the time I was done with this one, I had come to appreciate water as never before. At one point the shaman told us to drink it in as he poured precious pitchers of clean water onto the earth floor. "Think about all of the people who have no access to clean water," he told us. "Think about the people who have to walk hours just for a bucket of dirty water." With door and each song celebrating the sacred water, we became thirstier like never before.
"Drink with gratitude," he said - and I did and have ever since.
I haev seen this video before, but a recent sighting on Zengardner inspired me to post it here. Our oceans are being decimated. Not only is the Macondo well leaking again (or an area nearby - BP won't give out any info), but the oceans are being contaminated from Fukushima. The sea animals are dying. The marine life is radioactive. We need to do something to heal the planet and good intentions will pave the way.
Please pray for the water.
