Water Nourishes Change
This time of year germination begins beneath the soil. To germinate, seeds swell with water. The action in germination is a quickening, a transformation of cells. And it requires water.
Winter in Seattle, everything is saturated. Water seeping, spilling, washing, soaking and supporting germination. In some Ayurveda writings, it is noted that drinking water can balance qualities associated with emotional and spiritual emaciation and dehydration.
Take a moment and sense what seeds are dormant, what seeds are swelling. If you feel flat or dry, drink some water. Nurture what is germinating by adding water.
