My grandfather, a sailor, used to say the ocean cleared the cobwebs in his head.
The water goddess carved the earth as we know it. The mountains and valleys, the rivers and land.
Like air, we need it to survive and we are made up of mostly water. But to flow like water, we need to create conditions where we empty ourselves out from time to time and fill back up. That means diving below to find out what is hiding there and letting it go. After all, the trick is to surrender to the flow!
