In the beginning, water carved the river valleys and molded the shores of the oceans.

In darkness, bathed in water, we are born, tied forever to the earth, the salt of our blood a reminder of primal seas.

In our daily thirst, water restores us and nourishes all that we eat.

Indeed, water is the essence of life.

And, when you think about it, water is not too dissimilar from the idea of “breath,” the life force so often evoked by spiritual gurus.
