Well I also believe in deep earth sprits, water spirits as well, along with the rest.
So it kind of made sense how you explained that, there are ones in between just as well.
Loved how you worded that, natural...if anything is natural, it would have to be water.
Ever notice peoples fear of water? Of not being able to see whats beneath or around them?
What I understand is, we can be just as much water, as water is.
Yes, when I look into peoples eyes I feel that, the depth and endlessness at its center, sort of like looking into the mystery of the vast ocean or life itself, where we see and absorb yet aren't completely aware of how we came to be, how we got here, or the mysteries and dangers that surround us everyday.
Have you heard of the Chinese concept of "Li"?
"The tao is a certain kind of order, and this kind of order is not quite what we call order when we arrange everything geometrically in boxes, or in rows. That is a very crude kind of order, but when you look at a plant it is perfectly obvious that the plant has order. We recognize at once that is not a mess, but it is not symmetrical and it is not geometrical looking. The plant looks like a Chinese drawing, because they appreciated this kind of non-symmetrical order so much that it became an integral aspect of their painting. In the Chinese language this is called li, and the character for li means the markings in jade. It also means the grain in wood and the fiber in muscle. We could say, too, that clouds have li, marble has li, the human body has li. We all recognize it, and the artist copies it whether he is a landscape painter, a portrait painter, an abstract painter, or a non-objective painter. They all are trying to express the essence of li. The interesting thing is, that although we all know what it is, there is no way of defining it. Because tao is the course, we can also call li the watercourse, and the patterns of li are also the patterns of flowing water. We see those patterns of flow memorialized, as it were, as sculpture in the grain in wood, which is the flow of sap, in marble, in bones, in muscles. All these things are patterned according to the basic principles of flow. In the patterns of flowing water you will all kind of motifs from Chinese art, immediately recognizable, including the S-curve in the circle of yang-yin. So li means then the order of flow, the wonderful dancing pattern of liquid, because Lao-tzu likens tao to water: The great tao flows everywhere, to the left and to the right, It loves and nourishes all things, but does not lord it over them."
Life, everlasting life.
Yes, here's an interesting bit for you: "The jellyfish of Turritopsis nutricula has the capability to be immortal, able to revert to the polyp phase of its life cycle under adverse conditions."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jellyfish
An article:http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/disco ... jellyfish/
"The feature of the salamander that attracts most attention is its healing ability: the axolotl does not heal by scarring and is capable of the regeneration of entire lost appendages in a period of months, and, in certain cases, more vital structures. Some have indeed been found restoring the less vital parts of their brains. They can also readily accept transplants from other individuals, including eyes and parts of the brain—restoring these alien organs to full functionality. In some cases, axolotls have been known to repair a damaged limb as well as regenerating an additional one, ending up with an extra appendage that makes them attractive to pet owners as a novelty. In metamorphosed individuals, however, the ability to regenerate is greatly diminished.
The axolotl is therefore used as a model for the development of limbs in vertebrates."
