WATER & FEELINGS

2

Water is an element that recurs often in my life or in the form of floods or lakes. I have always felt a strong attraction to the water that is for me a kind of parallel world quieter, slower, in a sense, muffled, sweet with its power to lull and to relax, but mysterious and sometimes dangerous. Thinking about it, even my zodiac sign is part of the signs of water …
And just across the water tend to contemplate and internalize the external world.
I like to pause and reflect for a moment, especially after a hectic week and see that even a 2 year old can appreciate the time spent with herself in the middle of nature. I think that also leave space for the youngest to think is necessary for a balanced and conscientious development, and to learn to listen to your inner voice.

L’acqua è un elemento che si ripropone spesso nella mia vita o sotto forma di alluvioni o di laghi circostanti. Ho sempre provato una forte attrazione per l’acqua che rappresenta per me una specie di mondo parallelo più silenzioso, più lento, in un certo senso attutito, dolce con il suo potere di cullare e di far rilassare, ma misterioso e talvolta pericoloso. Pensandoci, anche il mio segno zodiacale fa parte dei segni di acqua…
E proprio di fronte all’acqua tendo a contemplare e a interiorizzare il mondo esteriore.
Mi piace soffermarmi a riflettere per qualche momento soprattutto dopo una settimana frenetica e vedere che anche un bambino di 2 anni possa apprezzare il tempo trascorso con se stesso in mezzo alla natura. Credo che lasciare lo spazio anche ai piu piccoli per pensare sia necessario per uno sviluppo equilibrato e coscienzioso, e per imparare ad ascoltare la propria voce interiore.

Woda jest elementem, który powtarza się często w moim życiu, albo w postaci powodzi lub pobliskich jezior. Zawsze czułam silny pociąg do wody, która jest dla mnie pewnego rodzaju równoległym światem, cichszym, wolniejszym, w pewnym sensie przytłumionym, słodkim ze wzgledu na moc kolysania i uspokajania, ale jednoszesnie tajemniczym i czasami niebezpiecznym. Myśląc o tym… nawet mój znak zodiaku jest wodnym znakiem…
To wlasnie nad wodą mam tendencję do kontemplacji i internalizacji świata zewnętrznego.
Lubię się zatrzymać i porozmyslac przez parę chwil, zwłaszcza po ciężkim tygodniu i zobaczyć, że nawet 2-letnie dziecko jest w stanie docenić czas spędzony z samym soba na łonie natury. Myślę, że dawanie przestrzeni i czasu najmłodszym jest konieczne dla równoważonego rozwoju i mozliwoscią nauki słuchania swojego wewnętrznego głosu.

  1. I enjoy water also. It is so soothing. Great for contemplation and also easing the mind. Your photos are wonderful. It is a pleasure to experience your daughter who seems to enjoy the water also, and also play as children do. 🙂 Thank you for sharing this very enjoyable post based on water.

  2. “Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend”

  3. Thank you for sharing this piece. and I agree, water can be soothing and comforting. For one, whom was born in a divergent country—where rain (water) is often times, a rarity—when it falls; it makes one feel so overjoyed and blessed.

  4. A Poem I Wrote:

    Swimming

    Swimming. The water shimmers ahead of me, mesmerising, shining. For the first time I really note her majesty and look deep into her being. I find myself held within her soft caress at some galaxy’s edge. The stars glitter all around me on the water’s flowing surface. My breath rises and falls, ebbing away, rolling over my outstretched fingers, amazed. The little waves I cause grow smaller and smaller into the distance. Never disappearing. I feel a swelling calmness. Pulled lovingly into her journeying life as she runs, babbles and stands, I am held protected within her depths as she carves and remakes the whole world. In her womblike hold, her universal flow, I relax; home, whole, completely hers.

    Thought you might like it! 🙂
