You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”
― Bruce Lee
The earth is 71 percent water. The average adult human body is 50-65% water, averaging around 57-60%. The percentage of water in infants is much higher, typically around 75-78% water, dropping to 65% by one year of age. To be in possession of water. Pure water that is nourishing and filling is a thing not many of us posses. Being infused with pure water, that makes you loose interest in pop and other sugary sweet drinks, gives clarity to mind and life’s purpose.
In our basically uninformed lives, we so far have only being familiar with the commercialized water, forced fed to us by a government enamored with controlling the mind of the masses. Fluoridated water. Water filled with chemicals. Water that has shit and other contaminants in it. Most conscientious peoples embark on elevating their awareness and seek to acquire real water. Not toilet flushed water. Some put a filter on their tap, some get a jug with a filter. Some who own their own houses put the filter on the main system and others periodically purchase “fake water” sold in bottles. The latter are the ones who go around praising the value of bottled water and their cool factor in sporting this fashionable item.
Water, water, water. Everywhere there is water, but not a drop to sip
The water I speak of, represents knowledge that is evident in a world of easy access to information. Albeit information that is often corrupted and tainted with bullshit, misinformation, misdirection and governmental propaganda to control how we think and behave. Such information has to be filtered through common-sense and weighed against other information to arrive at a form of overstanding and consistency. It is very foolish of you and I to think that just because we are able to drink clean or filtered water, that others know of or care enough to practice due diligence, which ensures their water or information is as pure as it gets. Such a crowd is as egotistical and ignorant as those who thinks drinking bottled water, like the so called “just arrived” conscious folks, who often use their newly acquired “knowledge” as a fashion trend.
An example of such a case happened recently when I entered into a conversation with a resident of Jamaica about the influx of plastic rice on the island by the scavengers. This female’s only submission to the conversation was to put out a warning to look out for and be careful of purchasing plastic rice. I on the other hand exclaimed that this is karma biting the people in the ass and they deserved such a fate because the population for decades has not held the government responsible for rejecting their agricultural sector, instead developing a love of imported edibles. She replied that Jamaica does not grow rice, something that is more due to not wanting to instead of not being capable of. Seeing that the Parish of Portland alone has the exact conditions to grow rice. Hers was a short sighted rejoinder, which excuses the fact that successive turns at governance has netted continual gutting of the local economy, followed up by inviting foreign “experts” such as the Asians to come in and further destroy and occupy almost all fabric of the country. Finally she asked if the country I live in imports rice? Because she was tired of my bullshit. Such is the state of mind of the spiritual and intellectually impoverished who is surrounded by water, yet remain thirsty due to their penchant for pop and other soft drinks.
It is in fact a truth that a spoonful of water, like a little knowledge can harm or even kill you. And it is also a truth that…
… in the abundance of water the fool will forever remain thirsty.
