Water is Sacred
Core tenet of Hinduism is that all life is sacred. Water in particular is sacred because without water, life as we know it on Planet Earth, would cease to exist. So the question becomes how do we preserve and protect water. Yet, most of us know what we need to do. The irony is that so frequently we allow ourselves to justify choices that we know are wrong, whether its eating vegetarian, buying organic, getting only as much as need, etc. The challenge and the opportunity is to make our choices in awareness of our inherent oneness, the universe as an extension of our Self, so that the water outside is one with the blood flowing through our own body. Therefore, living our lives conscious of our choices such that we are not berating others but that we become magnets of truth-of our inherent oneness and connection.
