Of the four elements, water is the one that mingles most closely with our own body, and because of this, by drinking water we can establish communication with the pure forces of the universe and absorb the elements it contains. But for this to happen, you must sip it slowly, thinking as you do so that you are imbibing the blood of nature, which feeds and waters all creatures.
Water is the mother of life, and it deserves our respect, gratitude and love. At the marriage feast of Cana, Jesus changed water into wine, that is to say, into blood, into life.
When you drink water, remember that it will be transformed into life-giving blood in your own body too.
Meditate at length on this idea and say to the water, ‘You that nourish all creatures, reveal to me the secrets of eternal life.’
