Inspiration for Today: #2 Water and Rock

water and rock

Water. Rock. Forces of nature. Water, flowing over such harshness creates soft impressions and interesting features. Exposing layers beneath. But these changes take place over years, as water and ice make smooth the rough surface.

Decades. Centuries. Unrelenting flow.

In turn, the rock forces the water to separate, expressing it's every form and shape. Light reflects in various ways, innumerable moments of beauty.

Symbiotic dichotomy.

As circumstances of life flow over our hearts and souls, our rough edges are smoothed. We may resist unwanted challenge, but it comes nonetheless. There may be permanent impressions, indentations left behind as reminders of what came before. But our rough edges are smoothed. Light reflected, creating a beauty in us none can deny.

So, let the water flow and dance across our souls.

With Peace and Hope,
aka Cali gal

Reading your words and thinking about water flows I felt my heart calming down. It's truth. I was thinking, why water hypnotizes us? Why so many things in this world so much depend on water? Even 2/3 of us is pure water. This magic substance gives life. It cleans. We need it to surive. It relaxes and gives calm.

Thank you for your words, Cali, they are like the sip of fresh water in the middle of hot summer!
