Water Reflections

The following quote comes from this delightful post. Read the quote and tell me if you don't think this is really very cool?!?!??!

“You exhale roughly a liter of water per day into the atmosphere, and most of this water rains or snows back down again within about a week’s time. The total global precipitation is about 1,000,000,000,000,000 (one quadrillion) times greater than the amount of water you exhale, so your impact on the weather is pretty minor.

But even if you contribute only one quadrillionth of the total water content in a snowflake, that is still about 1,000 molecules. It depends on how well things are mixed in the atmosphere, but there are probably, very roughly, about a thousand of your molecules in every snowflake.”

presence knows presence

"Prayer is not primarily saying words or thinking thoughts. It is, rather, a stance, a way of being present.

It’s a way of living in the Presence, living in awareness of the Presence, and even of enjoying the Presence. Presence knows Presence.

The full contemplative is not just aware of the Presence,

but trusts,
and delights in it." -- Richard Rohr

Water Reflections

"When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze."

~Isaiah 43:2
