The water we know and use every day to wash ourselves is a materialization of the cosmic fluid that fills all of space.
By means of thought, it is possible to establish a relationship with this fluid and to purify ourselves upon contact with it.
The first step is to wash yourself with the awareness that through this physical water you are touching an element of a spiritual nature. Therefore, try to wash yourself using measured, harmonious gestures, so that your thought may free itself too and do its work.
Concentrate on the water, on how cool, clear and pure it is, and you will soon feel that it is reaching unknown regions within you and producing transformations there. Not only will you feel lighter and purified, but your heart and intellect will also be nourished by new, subtler and more life-giving elements.
Physical water contains all the elements and forces of spiritual water; you just have to learn to awaken them in order to receive them.
